PREVIEW A Clever Woman + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Two women have a quiet conversation on the couch at home
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 screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Jon Sanders, actor James Northcote, co-producer and actor Anna Mottram and composer Douglas Finch.
