Clio Barnard Interview (10 mins)
With The Selfish Giant, Clio Barnard raised the stakes. Her first fictional feature stuns and sears itself into the memory, building on the great promise of her only other cinematic work, The Arbor. Here she addresses 'authenticity', the inspiration for her work and how children who are criminalised and marginalised can, ultimately, be idealised too.
