Mozart Enigma

MOZART ENIGMA is an ironic comment on biographical pseudo-documentaries. Envisioning a person? Is that possible? Why not go to a fortune teller, take off your wig and have your cards read?

We put together a photo collage for the film MOZART ENIGMA. While it has Mozart’s features, he is shown with a new hairdo and clothes. The altered photograph was shown to a fortune teller in Vienna who didn’t know just who was involved. She then read the cards.
