BFI Film Festival - Sworn Virgin
One of the section in the festival is called 'Journey'. This section usually has some interesting stories and usually the stories are not about a an actual journey in terms of travel, they are personal, physical, emotional and internal. Sworn Virgin is Laura Bispuri first deature film, unfortunately she wasn't able to attend my particular screening, but the producer was there and explained how Bispuri came across this story, as the film was based on a novel of the same name by Elvira Dones. She said that this was a story that Bispuri needed to tell.
It was, what I call, a quiet film, and after all the big noises, it was felt good to see this woman's journey of self discovery shown in such a delicate way.
