Kiss the Zombie
In Lady Lazarus Sylvia Plath speaks from beyond the grave through the medium of film.

Her body is represented by a living artist filmmaker who conjures Plath's ghost through an ouija board. Sandra Lahire intends Plath to be present in this piece. There is no sense of history, her death is ignored, or more accurately the shift from life to death has less emphasis than her spiritualist re entry into the living, speaking directly, reciting her poetry.

Still from Lady Lazarus by Sandra Lahire, 1991
