How does Lynne Ramsay do a reveal, in MORVEN CALLAR? How does the great actor-director Kinuyo Tanaka? Or Sarah Polley? Or Alice Rohrwacher?
As cinema is a kind of time machine, it’s no surprise that it’s great at representing memory. In this chapter we look at rare movie gems about memory directed by filmmakers including Petra Costa, Maria Plyta, Dorota Kędzierzawska, Věra Chytilová, Mai Zetterling, and Mati Diop.
Every filmmaker has to think about time. As this chapter shows, Alice Guy-Blaché, Chantal Akerman, Ildikó Enyedi, Hanna Polak, Marie Menken, and Sally Potter have done so brilliantly.
