Turku IABA SNS Meetup

A film screening (18:00): ‘Independent Miss Craigie’ with the director Lizzie Thynne.

Years after her death, film director Jill Craigie reopens an old suitcase, left behind in her house. The contents prompt memories of the extraordinary life and loves of this forceful, charismatic woman. Working outside the British Documentary Movement in the 1940s and early 50s, Craigie (1911 – 99), was one of the first women directors in the UK and, later, the  wife of former Labour leader, Michael Foot. Her films such as To Be Woman (1951), on equal pay for women, and Out of Chaos (1944) on modern art, featuring Henry Moore and Paul Nash, tackled new subjects for the cinema through a unique blend of drama, polemic and often humour. Dual narrative voices – from actual interviews and a script performed by Hayley Atwell – evoke the split between Craigie’s persona as a young, apparently confident film-maker and her later dismissal of her work.
