Sally Potter, UK 1992, 92 Min. Min., OV with English subs
Followed by a talk with Liz Rosenfeld

Sally Potter’s queer classic is an extravagant restaging of Virginia Woolf’s novel of the same name, in which a nobleman doesn’t die but rather becomes a woman across several centuries. Tilda Swinton stars as Orlando with a notable cameo by Quentin Crisp as Queen Elizabeth I. Potter co-wrote the rich score that nearly dominates the film, guiding us through time.

Liz Rosenfeld is a Berlin based artist who works in film/video, performance, and experimental writing practice. Grounded in the personal, Liz's work contends with questions regarding how queer ontologies are rooted in both political and personal variant hypocritical desire(s). Liz’s films are represented by Video Data Bank and LUX Moving Image.
