Sally Potter has long been one of our most unpredictable and idiosyncratic filmmakers. For this very special evening, she will visit the Film Society to present a double feature of her much anticipated new comic drama The Party, starring Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, and Cherry Jones; and a 25th anniversary screening of her visually dazzling, Oscar-nominated 1993 Virginia Woolf adaptation Orlando, starring Tilda Swinton. Potter will appear for a Q&A following The Party and for an introduction preceding Orlando.

25th Anniversary Screening · Intro by Sally PotterPotter’s bold, unsentimental re-working of Virginia Woolf's classic novel concerns an innocent aristocrat (Tilda Swinton) who journeys through 400 years of English history first as a man, then as a woman.
