Sally Potter
Ended 17 January

Sally Potter’s unforgettable vision of Virginia Woolf’s classic novel follows the life of the apparently immortal Orlando, who begins an epic quest for love and freedom as a man in the court of Elizabeth I and completes the search 400 years later as a woman. The dazzling adaptation is aided by Potter’s unwavering eye and shrewd casting: Tilda Swinton is the perfect embodiment of Orlando and Quentin Crisp has a ball as an old queen, or Elizabeth I to her subjects.

Season 1- Beyond Varda


With director Agnès Varda’s death in 2019, the film world lost a leading (and too-often overlooked) member of the Nouvelle Vague, a cinematic innovator and a pioneering voice. Her trademark blend of the deeply personal and highly political seen through a female lens brought new experimentation to filmic form and narrative possibilities, and saw the diminutive Varda cast a long shadow for several generations of filmmakers. This season of TANK TV marks that legacy with 10 films by female directors for whom Varda laid a cinematic foundation.
