- "Sally Potter has always been Britain's most independent director: as a feminist filmmaker, a leading light of the BFI Production Board generation, an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and a pioneer of digital cinema. Drawing on exclusive access to archival materials and in-depth interviews, The Cinema of Sally Potter: A Politics of Love opens up vivid historical, political and cultural vistas to give the first full account of an extraordinary career. From Thriller, which galvanized the new feminist cinema in 1979, to Rage (2009), a digital docu-fiction about information in the age of globalisation, Potter has refashioned cinematic looking and listening through her attention to what dominant culture neglects and suppresses: labour, performance, beauty, poetry, listening and the spirit of place. This volume argues that, by putting the unseen on screen, Potter's films fill the viewer with wonder and desire, enacting the possibilities of cinema as love."--BOOK JACKET.
