Meeting of Two Queens
Encuentro entre dos Reinas
A film by Cecilia Barriga
Spain, 1991, 14 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W99304
In this witty, luminous tape Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich star in the roles of their lives—cast as lovers by Chilean video artist Barriga. Queen Christina meets the Scarlet Empress; Anna Karenina and Blonde Venus transcend tragedy. This beguiling tape links the queens of the silver screen through motifs such as the cigarette and a circuitry of meaningful gazes and gestures. Clips from their signature roles are remounted in silent film style vignettes to tell a burgeoning tale of desire and destiny.
