Interview with Sarah Pucill


Interview with Sarah Pucill

May 2014

Sarah Pucill (born 1961) has been making films for nearly 25
years. Amongst other things, her works explore the presence of and our
relationship with the female body – our own and other, narcissism, queer
sexuality, identity and sense of self. Certain motifs recur throughout,
especially the mirror, which plays a key role in her latest work, Magic Mirror (2013), her first feature-length
film, based on the writings and photographs of French Surrealist Claude Cahun

Pucill’s visual language emerged in the 1990s in the
context of experimental film, and her works have been screened at major
international film festivals in London, Europe, Canada and the USA. Each new
film she makes is a progression from the previous one, and many are born out of
photographs or still images.
