Director: Sally Potter
In 1600, nobleman Orlando (Tilda Swinton) inherits his parents’ house, thanks to Queen Elizabeth I who commands the young man to never change. After a disastrous affair with Russian princess Sasha, Orlando looks for solace in the arts before being appointed ambassador to Constantinople in 1700, where war is raging. One morning, Orlando is shocked to wake up as a woman and returns home, struggling as a female to retain her property as the centuries roll by.
Orlando is being screened as part of Pink Screen at The Projector presented by NBCU and Salesforce – a series of screenings that showcase the talent, struggles and victories of the LGBTQ community across different countries and cultures.
Our aim is to present a curated selection of films that celebrate both personal and universal LGBTQ stories. We believe in film as a source of catharsis and as a vehicle to inspire, motivate and challenge prejudice and established perceptions. Through this series of screenings we intend to not only entertain, but to also spark conversations and connections, to educate and to provide much needed representation and diversity in the current film offerings in Singapore.
Standard Tickets $13.50, Concession Tickets $11.50
