A rare chance to see Sally Potter’s ground-breaking debut, which explores themes of power in relation to capitalism, and sexuality from a feminist and collaborative perspective. Part of Birds Eye View’s Queerious programme.

The film was written and produced by Lindsay Cooper, Rose English and Sally Potter, and made with an all-women crew, all of whom were on equal pay.

Featuring ‘swinging sixties’ icon Julie Christie and Colette Laffont as two star crossed lovers, this musical and comic adventure tells of their inter-connected quests to understand the nature of money and the feminine ideal in a story that simultaneously subverts and sends up the Hollywood narrative.

Presented in partnership with Club Des Femmes.
