Orlando + Sally Potter in Conversation 12A

Sally Potter, France, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, UK, 1993, 93m.

Followed by a Q&A with Sally Potter.

Orlando is a story of the quest for love, and it is also an ironic dance through English history. Addressing contemporary concerns about gender and identity, the film is remarkably true to the spirit of Virginia Woolf, but it also skilfully adapts the original story to give it a striking, cinematic form. The screenplay is a standard text taught in film schools as a radical and successful adaptation of a classic work. Orlando is a bold, unsentimental re-working of Virginia Woolf's classic novel in which an innocent aristocrat journeys through 400 years of English history first as a man, then as a woman.

This screening of Orlando is part of a weekend of events celebrating the films of Sally Potter ahead of the release of her debut album Pink Bikini on 14 July.

Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane, Lothaire Bluteau, John Wood
