For her startlingly original feature debut, Turner Prizewinner Gillian Wearing advertised for members of the public to perform. Intense, revealing and sometimes disturbing, the disparate group experiments with Method acting to access personal memories and experiences, guided by leading practitioner Sam Rumbelow. With results ranging from episodes of violence to imagined love (via an excerpt from King Lear), the participants confront deep truths about themselves in an extraordinary work of modern art and cinema.
Followed by a Q&A with Gillian Wearing, Sam Rumbelow, and some of the film's participants.
