105min (event total runtime 155min)
A BFI release
To coincide with the release of Little Joe, and the accompanying retrospective of her earlier films, we’re delighted to welcome writer-director Jessica Hausner to discuss her career with BFI programmer-at-large Geoff Andrew, following a screening of her latest feature. Excerpts from her remarkable body of work will be screened, and questions taken from the audience.
Preceding Little Joe will be an extract from The Birth of a Flower (UK 1910. 3min). Directed by F Percy Smith, a true pioneer, who invented original (and bizarre) methods for time lapse and micro cinematography (especially of flowers and insects) that have hardly been bettered by modern film technique.
