DESCRIPTION: In his movie “The Blood of a Poet” Cocteau lets his leading actor transgress to another world by jumping through a mirror (the full film can be seen here). There are a number of interesting relations to our theme: a.o. the question of travelling, the change of spaces, the story of Pygmalion etc.
