SPECIAL SCREENING "DOC IS THE NEW BLACK"

Pay attention to details! Mark Rappaport brings us another sublime filmic essay, this time about one of the most famous props in the history of cinema – the vanity tables. What stories do they hide, what do they reveal about the women who use them, what is the symbolism of its reflection? It is possible to unravel this mystery within the filmography of Douglas Sirk, a visionary director and the master of the melodrama genre, a man who allowed women to be much more than mere accessories in the narratives of Hollywood.
