Snow White Stories

The story of Snow White is particularly hot these days. A lot of new adaptations are in the works. Though there have been versions in the past, there were never many of them. I believe Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is not an easy fairy tale to reinterpret, but it seems that some interesting things are happening.
