Bronze Mirror, The

Australia, 2007 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Susan Danta

Villagers in ancient Korea stumble across a mirror, having never seen one before. Danta's adaptation of a Korean folk-tale looks with subtle humour at how easily we can pass judgement on strangers. If we saw ourselves for the first time, who would we see?
