Sally Potter @ the BFI

The BFI's first ever retrospective of a British woman director's work starts on 2nd December and runs throughout the month. Take a loved one (or first date?) to see the studio run of a beautiful new print of Orlando or let a post-Xmas screening of YES fill your heart with peace and goodwill to all. As co-curator, I'm inordinately proud of this fantastic season -- and also very proud to be introducing it in a "beginner's guide" on Friday Dec 4th, in collaboration with Club des Femmes, for Thriller and Potter's early shorts, some of which have not been seen since the 1970s! There's also events with Tilda Swinton and Julie Christie, so book early and I'll see you on the South Bank to reprise the dance from The London Story!
