The Pretty and The Deadly is a visual essay exploring the role of the Femme Fatale in the classic Film Noir film and how this depiction relates to the treatment of female ambition today. It creates a narrative through a mashup of different scenes with Femme Fatales and is juxtaposed by a mashup of original audio from the film and modern audio in order to critique the treatment of women and their ambition.
