Deleuze and Cinema

Barbara M. Kennedy

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Sally Potter's film Orlando in the context of Gilles Deleuze's concept of the plane of immanence. It explains that this film narrates the historical account of Orlando's journey through time as both male and female, and suggests that Potter's intention was to present a feminist text which exemplified constructions and patriarchal constrictions of societies across generational boundaries. The chapter presents a pragmatic and post-feminist formulation of the aesthetics of the film through a Deluzian framework.

Keywords:   Orlando, Sally Potter, film, Gilles Deleuze, plane of immanence, feminist text
