The Gold Diggers (U)

Sally Potter’s ground-breaking debut explores themes of power in relation to capitalism and sexuality from a feminist and collaborative perspective. The film was written and produced by Lindsay Cooper, Rose English and Sally Potter, and made with an all-women crew, all of whom were on equal pay.

Featuring ‘Swinging Sixties’ icon Julie Christie and Colette Laffont as two star-crossed lovers, this musical and comic adventure tells of their inter-connected quests to understand the nature of money and the feminine ideal, in a story that simultaneously subverts and sends up the Hollywood narrative.

Presented in partnership with Club Des Femmes.

The screening will be introduced by Ania Ostrowska of queer feminist collective Club Des Femmes and will be accompanied by short film Are You Still Watching? (N/C 15+) by Sissy Screens: Tali Polichtuk & Kitty Chrystal.

Glasgow Film Theatre, 12 Rose Street, Glasgow G3 6RB
