Latvia: Fairytale, Romance, 84 minutes
The teenage daughter of a cross-fit trainer is threatened by the jealousy of her malevolent step-mother. Laila Pakalnina riffs on the legend of Snow White to tell a profusely inventive and wit-filled contemporary tale where self-obsession and grief are countered by hope and kindness. Filmed entirely from the angle of a ‘selfie’ and accompanied by the fantastic musical stylings of Paulius Kilbauskas and Vygintas Kisevicius In The Mirror is an unique and joyful experience.
