A Clever Woman (15)
Beguiling and free-spirited, this uplifting and emotionally intense film from director Jon Sanders and his wife Anna Mottram, who stars alongside Josie Lawrence, Tanya Myers and James Northcote, explores sisterly bonds and the process of mourning.
Sisters and performance artists Phoebe and Dot have returned to their family home on the Isle of Wight a year after the death of their composer mother. As they prepare the house for its sale, clearing decades of family clutter, they have started to work on a site-specific performance piece about their complex relationship with their mother and her serial infidelities; this incorporates her compositions for pianola, mostly songs using the poems of Mary Coleridge the Victorian feminist.
Over one day, they are forced to engage with the ghosts of the past and the void left behind.
At once a celebration and a lament, Sanders and Mottram’s improvised production style lends itself perfectly to a story that is playful, raw and always surprising.
