Carol Morley

Dreams, memories and reveries - the collected works of one of Britain's most distinctive filmmakers.

Over two connected collections compiling her Free shorts and Rental features, we present a résumé of Morley's films to date, from her earliest shorts for Central St. Martins to acclaimed features such as The Falling.

In totality, several key themes emerge - absence, autobiography and how we confront the past, as well as the female experience in general. This comprehensive view of her oeuvre brings such riches to the fore and reaffirms Morley's significance to 21st-century British cinema.
