Film Series: Orlando

1992. UK. Dir: Sally Potter. With Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane. 94 min.

 

Commanded by the dying Queen not to grow old, the eponymous nobleman (Swinton) obeys; through the centuries Orlando’s age never changes – though hir gender suddenly does. This wonderful journey was originally conceived by Virginia Woolf but comes to life via the film medium, effortlessly bounding across time and circumstance with a free spirit.
