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 (1894-1954).

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.
