'Suffragette' Director on How She Made Her Period Film Feel Immediate

Publish date:

Suffragette director Sarah Gavron talks to The Credits about her film which focuses on the many brave women who fought to get the right to vote.

She says of the film's naturalistic style that it stemmed from "this idea of wanting to make something relevant rather than a piece of history, wanting it to connect with audiences of today. It was the idea behind going for the working woman. That was a guiding idea that in a way, was very useful to have, because all departments followed it. We had these handheld cameras and the actors had quite a lot of freedom and we were trying to capture their performance rather than stage it for camera. The set designer was trying, wherever possible, to create these very real feeling sets, that were 360 degrees, so that the actors had freedom. That also was an enormous challenge because of course, 1912 England doesn’t really exist anymore, it exists in patches but it’s modernized and gentrified and also a lot was destroyed in the Blitz. The great coup on the location front was when we got access to the Houses of Parliament, it was the first ever film to shoot there. Not only did we get access but then we put in a request to take in 300 supporting artists and stage an anti-government riot in the courtyard."
