With a background of dance and theatre already behind her, Sally Potter began an apprenticeship at the London Filmmakers’ Co-op in the late 1960s. After making her experimental feminist short, Thriller (1979), Potter was given the opportunity to direct her first feature, The Gold Diggers (1983). Her later film, Orlando (1992), went on to great critical acclaim for its pioneering exploration of gender fluidity. These have been followed by works such as The Tango Lesson (1997), The Man Who Cried (2000), Yes (2004), Rage (2009), Ginger and Rosa (2012), The Party (2017), establishing her as one of the most important filmmakers in Britain. She is currently shooting her new feature, Molly, which is pencilled in for a 2020 release.
