FITTING ROOM-Poetry Video-2006

Filmacademy Baden-Württemberg

Director: Lucie Boucek


"Fitting Room" places Shakespears's sonnet No. 62 into a contempory environment. The poet's words are resuscitated in the modern context of self-fixation and beauty addiction in the era of Paris Hilton and Co. In a fitting room a self-pleased woman tries on several labeled shirts, thus the sonnet is being revealed sentence by sentence to the viewer.

The clip is screened at the Zebra Poetry Festival in Berlin, 11.-14.10.06
