No nailing fins to the floor: ambivalent femininities in Anna Melikian's The Mermaid
Anna Melikian's Rusalka/The Mermaid (2007) stands out in its multiple inscriptions of femininity, as well as in its inconsistencies regarding gender treatment. While the film offers many possibilities for rethinking woman's alterity, Melikian's compliance with traditional gender values complicates the film's sustained analysis. This essay navigates through The Mermaid's conflicting femininities by closely looking at its visual, aural and narrative techniques.
