Sally Potter

Sally Potter’s work has, from the early 1970’s, embraced dance, performance, theatre, music and film. Since her first cult hit with THRILLER (1979), Potter has concentrated on film and directed her first feature, THE GOLD DIGGERS, starring Julie Christie, in 1983. Potter then made a short, THE LONDON STORY, and several documentaries before the internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning ORLANDO, starring Tilda Swinton. This was followed by THE TANGO LESSON (1996) and THE MAN WHO CRIED (2000), starring Christina Ricci, Johnny Depp, Cate Blanchett and John Turturro.

In 2004 Potter made YES, starring Joan Allen, Simon Abkarian, and Sam Neill. Potter then directed CARMEN for English National Opera in Autumn 2007. Potter’s film, RAGE, starring Judi Dench, Jude Law, Steve Buscemi, Simon Abkarian and Dianne Wiest was released in 2009. You can find out more at www.sallypotter.com, where Sally keeps a blog and an interactive message board. (07/12).
