The Mother

Jelena Vanoverbeek

Applying an additional mirror effect to a film that is already an elaborate play on this notion, a single close-up turns into a confronting hallucination.

For The Mirror (1975) Tarkovski cast actress Margarita Terechova in a double role. The setting and photography added even more depth to her character. Vanoverbeek digitally adds a ghostly dimension. An image encountering itself, incorporating complexity in a single glance.
