Looking at the presence of Virginia Woolf\'s novel Orlando in Potter\'s cinematic adaptation, thinking particularly about ideas of haunting and ghosting.
An exploration into the ways in which Woolf and Potter construct their versions of Orlando and how these show similar motives as authors, or perhaps how these motives might differ, possibly due to the fact that they use different mediums to tell the same story.
The way in which the voice is used throughout the various drafts of the film to merge gender boundaries, and to transcend the traditional, biological limitations of a character's sex.
How did Sally Potter approach the task of bringing to screen the literary exploration of gender demonstrated in Virginia Woolf\'s book?
Concept & contextualization: Potter's exploration of identity and self-narrative through a multiplicity of histories.
The female consciousness throughout the film. Orlando supports the poet because of his otherness
