Actor and filmmaker Kate Hardie joins the Hyphenates this month, as we look at some of the key films released in April 2016, including Jamie Adams’ improvised comedy Black Mountain Poets, Sebastian Schipper’s single-take feature Victoria and Hirokazu Koreeda’s comedy/drama Our Little Sister. Kate, Sophie and Lee then look at the films of legendary documentarian Shirley Clarke for our semi-regular mini-Hyphenates segment. Finally, Kate takes us through the career of her filmmaker of the month - a filmmaker Kate worked with on many occasions - the brilliant Antonia Bird.

Just noting that Kate mentions that the BFI “can’t find a copy of Priest” (at 33:20). Which is weird as it’s definately listed in the retrospective (https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=antoniabird&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::context_id=) Not sure if Kate’s meaning a diferent film (possibly “Safe”, which isn’t in the festival, or that the BFI didn’t have a copy and had to get it through BBC Films?
