About this event

May's Book to Film at The Backlot will circle around Orlando, Virginia Woolf's 1928 satirical modern classic, and its equally brilliant 1992 film adaptation, directed by Sally Potter. The character Orlando is an immortal, time-hopping nobleman who changes gender throughout the story. Orlando's romantic adventures take them from England to Russia, to Turkey and back to England, and across about 300 years. The incomparable Tilda Swinton portrays Orlando mightily in the film.
