Veronica's veil

Jytte Rex, Denmark, 1977

90 min.DK/Experimental

Jytte Rex charts the white or wilfully deleted spots on the map of primarily women's happiness and grief. This is done by the experimental filmmaker's positioning of a dream narrator as a guide through the manyleveled visions, stories and pictures that unite work, love, and revolt in any individual's life. The title refers to the cloth or veil on which crucified Christ's tormented face left an imprint for posterity.
