In collaboration with No Studios, the Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance (MFA) hosts a monthly MFAvorites series where we screen the films that inspired us to become filmmakers and follow it with a conversation around its effect on our work.
For December, Maeve Jackson will talk about "Orlando" (1992), directed by Sally Potter, and its effect on her filmmaking style and sensibility.
"In 1600, nobleman Orlando (Tilda Swinton) inherits his parents' house, thanks to Queen Elizabeth I (Quentin Crisp), who commands the young man to never change. After a disastrous affair with Russian princess Sasha (Charlotte Valandrey), Orlando looks for solace in the arts before being appointed ambassador to Constantinople in 1700, where war is raging. One morning, Orlando is shocked to wake up as a woman and returns home, struggling as a female to retain her property as the centuries roll by."
