Episode 41 - Brazil (1985) (with Hope Dickson Leach)

Read more

Events take a turn for the dystopian in Episode 41, as Chris and Alex venture to Brazil (1985), Terry Gilliam’s nightmarish and absurdist satire of bureaucratic totalitarianism and governmental red tape. They are joined for this latest instalment by very special guest, filmmaker Hope Dickson Leach, whose work includes drama The Levelling (2015), which premiered internationally at the Toronto International Film Festival, and a number of successful short films such as Morning Echo (2010) and Silly Girl (2016). In October 2016, Hope was awarded the inaugural IWC Filmmaker Bursary Award in Association with the BFI at the London Film Festival, was named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit in October 2017, and a month later won a Scottish BAFTA for Best Screenwriter for The Levelling. Listen as they discuss distraction, delusion, dreaming and desire; the film’s technological commentary on cinema that gestures to the medium’s relationship to fiction; Brazil’s caricaturist logic that contributes to its surrealist horror; and how Gilliam creates the frustration of a vacuous fantasy for protagonist Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) that - thanks to the film’s uncooperative fictional society - can never be enacted.

This week, Miriam speaks to Hope Dickson Leach, writer, director, film-maker and campaigner based in Edinburgh - working around the globe. We drank hot chocolate.

Hope talks about what home means, the industry, her latest feature film The Levelling, parenting and its links to her work with the industry group campaigning for better awareness of, and support for, parents and carers - Raising Film. It's literally what most humans will do at some point in their life.

There is also a meander into and through both of our favourite books of 2018 and some excellent literary recommends. Miriam has a cold. STILL. Sorry.

Two women in the arts speak to brilliant women and have meandering conversations. Come join our sneaky wee cult.

Ep48: The Levelling (with Hope Dickson Leach & Corrina Antrobus)

Read more

In this episode Dario is joined at the Kino Teatr in St. Leonards by film director Hope Dickson Leach (@hopedickle) who introduces and discusses her newly released first feature The Levelling. Ellie Kendrick plays Clover, a young vet who has to reluctantly return to her father's farm after the sudden death of her brother. Deeply buried family tensions are brought to surface in a painful journey of guilt and self-examination told with an aesthetic precision that belies a low-budget first feature status. Hope outlines the production background and creative process behind this poignant and beautifully rendered drama. 

The episode also features a interview with the founder of the Bechdel Test Fest Corrina Antrobus (@corrinacorrina). Corrina discusses the development of the organisation and ruminates on various themes related to the status of women in cinema.
