Inside My Heart (15*) + ScreenTalk with director Saskia Boddeke

Relaxed Screening

A group of people in theatrical period dress stand in a circle in a darkly lit space.

Saskia Boddeke explores the rehearsal of movement and speech amongst an ensemble of neurodivergent and disabled actors staging a strange and beautiful fairy tale.

Inspired by the work of her husband Peter Greenaway, Boddeke blurs the lines between the stage and reality in this superb feature. Inside My Heart combines documentary filmmaking with painterly tableaux to showcase both the performance of Furia by Oscar Wagenmans and the passions, struggles, and relationships of Kamak, a professional ensemble for actors with intellectual disabilities.

With astonishing visuals in rich, saturated colours and compelling footage of the camaraderie and occasional tensions within the acting troupe, Inside My Heart blends the magic of an opera and the depth of a documentary.

This UK premiere of Inside My Heart will be followed by a ScreenTalk with director Saskia Boddeke, hosted by autistic film writer and curator Lillian Crawford.
