DJ-Set after the screening with Edna Martinez

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.

Edna Martinez is a Dj / Curator and artist from the Colombian Caribbean based between Berlin and Cartagena de Indias. Her musical selection is linked to her research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more.
