Sally Potter’s films have won over forty international awards and received BAFTA and Academy Award nominations. Her 1992 breakthrough Orlando(1992) an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s classic novel starring Tilda Swinton, was followed by The Tango Lesson (1996), The Man Who Cried (2000), Yes(2004), Rage (2009), Ginger & Rosa (2012), The Party (2017), and The Roads Not Taken (2020). Last September her short film Look At Me, starring Chris Rock and Javier Bardem, premiered at the Venice Film Festival. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 and her book Naked Cinema - Working with Actorsis published by Faber & Faber. Her soundtrack albums have been released by major labels including Sony Classical, Deutsche Grammaphon, and Milan.
Potter had a life in music that predates her work as a composer for film. As a voice in the avant-garde scene of the late 1970s she was a member of the ground-breaking group FIG (Feminist Improvising Group) with whom she toured extensively in Europe. She also performed with Lindsay Cooper’s Film Music Orchestra and collaborated (as lyricist) with her on the song cycle OH MOSCOW, performing in the USSR and East Berlin in 1989, before the wall came down. From the 1990s Sally moved away from improvised music and focused on the precisely structured scores for her films.
