The Three-Sided Mirror

La glace à trois faces

Jean Epstein | France | 1927

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

A classic of the 1920s French avant-garde, Jean Epstein’s dazzling experimental narrative based on the story by Paul Morand tells the tale of a young, wealthy businessman who is loved by three women.

This ground-breaking work is remarkable for its prismatic, shifting perspective on its central character, as well as its palpable sense of the spatio-temporal distortions wrought by modernity. A key influence on the work of Alain Resnais, this visionary film showcases Epstein at his most stylistically adventurous.
