In this fourth edition of A Female Direction we will screen the highly acclaimed Ginger & Rosa (2012). Prior to the screening, our curator will give a talk about the powerful director Sally Potter.

Friends Ginger (Fanning) and Rosa (Englert) were born in 1945 in the same London nurse room. In the early sixties they experience everything more or less at the same time: the first cigarette, kiss, drunkenness, sex. Soon, however, the age of nuclear danger and free love casts a shadow over friendship. Beautifully intimate filmed coming of age drama with a fine jazz soundtrack gives a nice picture of time.
