Travelling Shots: Travel, Movement and Empire in Orlando by Sophie Mayer,

Research for a paper on Orlando\'s relocation of Woolf\'s Constantinople to Khiva, exploring the subtexts of imperial history and the significance of travel for the film (and the production). "endings are beginnings": the novel is circular, beginning and ending with "home." The film is also circular, but moves on from the "clinging to the past" that Potter notes. For Woolf, Home is the "Great House" (and England), which Orlando possesses despite her change of sex, a reversal of the gendered laws that deprived Vita Sackville-West of Knole. But Sackville-West was also a traveller, and travel writer, and the novel is full of constant motion (at least until Orlando becomes female). The film suggests the novel's subtext of change as constant.
