Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: ORLANDO

August 29, 2019

Join us for a free 35mm screening of Sally Potter's Orlando, starring Tilda Swinton in the gender-bending title role. Adapted from a novel by Virginia Woolf, this two-time Oscar-nominated drama spans centuries, and takes its hero/heroine from the English countryside to Constantinople. Featuring performances by Billy Zane, Quentin Crisp (as Queen Elizabeth I), Simon Russell Beale, and Bronski Beat's Jimmy Somerville. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
