Stephanie Beroes

The Dream Screen

45' - 1986 - Short - Dialogue: English
Director: Stephanie Beroes
Focusing on the life and myth of film star Louise Brooks, Stephanie Beroes intercuts into her film, The Dream Screen (1986), scenes from a G.W. Past’s Pandora Box (1929), in which Brooks plays a femme fatale. Beroes combines this footage with scenes in which a Brooks look-alike discusses her relationship with her mother and with voice-over readings from Brooks autobiography. The complex interplay among these three elements locate Broks in a film history and in the cultural imagination.
