Interview: Why Sally Potter’s Orlando is still radically in fashion, 30 years on, BFI Online, 3 Nov 2022

Carly Mattox interviewed me for BFI Online about Orlando (Sally Potter, 1992) in response to the film’s appearance in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s exhibition Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear.

When we look at fashion and clothing and gender, we can see that time is a construct. That doesn’t mean that it’s meaningless; it just means that it’s very flexible, and that’s really liberating, because I think we can often feel very stuck in our own time. Orlando shows how things change.
