Description

Sally Potter's visually sumptuous Orlando (1992) is the cinematic adaptation of Virginia Woolf's gender- and history-bending novel of the same name. Beginning in the era of Queen Elizabeth I (played with gusto by writer and performer Quentin Crisp) and rolling down the centuries to end in contemporary London, Orlando is faithful to the spirit of a book that was regarded as impossible to adapt for the screen.

This semester's Cinéphile Sundays film series is titled Where Do We Go Now?. Although films made by women have already figured in our Cinéphile Sundays series, the time has come to dedicate a five-film cycle to women directors. The series’ title is the English translation of the title of one the films, Nadine Labaki’s Et maintenant on va où? (2011).
