SPOGULĪ IN THE MIRROR
No one cares who's the fairest of them all any more – these days it's all about who can do the most burpees! With an incredibly buoyant touch, in her most recent film Laila Pakalniņa has updated the tale of Snow White for our modern world. 100% committed to its stylised, black-and-white selfie aesthetic and brimming with comical absurdity, Pakalniņa's film is a critical look at today's zeitgeist that takes Instagram culture and fitness mania to their logical extremes. With IN THE MIRROR, the filmmaker has managed to meld form and content in a compelling manner, resulting in this little gem of a film.
