A Clever Woman
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Two women share a wine, embracing
A Clever Woman, dir. Jon Sanders, United Kingdom 2022, 88 min., English, 15

Sisters and performance artists Phoebe and Dot (Josie Lawrence and Tanya Myers) have returned to their family home on the Isle of Wight a year after the death of their composer mother. As they prepare the house for its sale, clearing decades of family clutter, they have started to work on a site-specific performance piece about their complex relationship with their mother and her serial infidelities.

Beguiling and free-spirited, Jon Sanders’ uplifting film explores family bonds and the process of mourning.

The preview screening on Tue 18 will be followed by a Q&A with the film team.
