Staff Pick: SEPARATION
November 15 only
Linda’s Staff Pick! SEPARATION concerns the inner life of a woman during a period of breakdown – marital, and possibly mental. Her past and possible future are revealed through a fragmented but brilliantly achieved and often humorous narrative, in which dreams and desires are as real as the ‘swinging’ London that the film is set in.
This cinematic treasure is the first feature length collaboration between iconic writer/actress Jane Arden and director/producer Jack Bond. Featuring an awesome soundtrack from 1960’s rock band Procol Harum, Jack Bond’s exquisite film is now revealed as a quintessential film of the 1960s. This staff pick gives Roxie audiences a unique opportunity to peek into an era of experimental film that is rarely ever screened in the US!
We are pleased to be screening BFI’s 2009 BluRay edition of the film which was transferred from the original 35mm mute negative.
