(who knows when?) but Sally is busy in Lockdown
about to enter the film into International film festivals.
Margaret Williams has made many award-winning dance and music-drama films. Her respected and internationally successful work has always taken a new and original approach, with an individual creative vision at the heart of all her films.
BBC iPlayer: Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh beach
SHOWN on BBC iPlayer from Friday 19th June for 30 days
Margaret filmed with her dream team of 7 camera operators and recording engineer Mike Hatch on the beach! One of the highlights of the worldwide Britten centenary celebrations was Aldeburgh Festival’s unforgettable open-air staging of Britten’s Peter Grimes on the very beach that inspired the opera, set against the dramatic backdrop of the North Sea.
On the right, the talented and brilliant students from the LOOKING FOR THE UNSEEN course, which Margaret devised for a diverse range of students coming from a variety of students across UCLA: anthropology; architecture; choreography; dance; design/media arts; history; geography & environmental studies; psychology and photography. Also, the gifted movers and shakers who took the DANCE for the CAMERA Course in the extraordinary World Arts & Culture/Dance department.
Margaret returned to UCLA for the Winter semester in January 2020 to teach a DANCE for CAMERA course for the fourth year running. Due to Coronavirus, UCLA was in Lockdown for the end of the semester so no photos of the wonderful students who participated this year. I’ve been invited to return in 2021, but decisions won’t be made until much later.
