Film Notes

This video work features Lucie Dolène, who in 1962 dubbed the French version of Disney’s animated film Snow White, humming “Some Day My Prince Will Come” as subtitles run below describing her legal battle with Disney to regain rights to the use of her own voice. We never hear her speak. The relationships between a French actress, a cartoon character, and a multinational corporation create a complex parable about voice, identity, and the hard business of entertainment.
