TLC: Juliet Jacques: MAGIC MIRROR

TLC at the Lexi is part of a project led by Inclusive Cinema. TLC (aka Trans-Led Cinema) is holding a space for trans curators, writers, and thinkers within cinema exhibition. This is an opportunity for the trans community and cis allies to celebrate, learn and share.


This event is produced by programmer Rebecca del Tufo @BeccadT


MAGIC MIRROR combines a re-staging of the French Surrealist artist Claude Cahun’s black and white photographs with selected extracts from her book Aveux non avenus (1930, Confessions Denied).In Surrealist kaleidoscopic fashion, the film weaves images and words, exploring the links between Cahun’s photographs and writing and Pucill’s own films, as both artists share similar iconography and concerns.


Followed by a Q&A with Sarah Pucill hosted by Juliet Jacques

.

Selected by Juliet Jacques who says:


“I chose Magic Mirror because it's a fascinating take on proto-queer, proto-Surrealist writer and artist Claude Cahun, whose work is currently undergoing a rediscovery and revival. In restaging Cahun's photographs and tableaux from Cahun's book Cancelled Confessions (1930), and combining them with Cahun's text from the same work, director Sarah Pucill makes a compelling film about identity, selfhood, and how creative art can help us to better understand ourselves.”


Juliet is a writer and filmmaker based in London. She has published three books and a volume of short stories, with her fourth book, Front Lines: Trans Journalism 2007-2021, due out in July 2022. She writes short fiction as well as journalism, essays and criticism on literature, film, art, music, politics, gender, sexuality and football. She has made two short 16mm films and directed a documentary.
