NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
UNBOUND: Scenes from the Life of Mary Shelley
Working with non-actors, the seasons, and the extraordinary architecture and landscapes of Rome, Abigail Child has created the exuberant and visually gorgeous UNBOUND: Scenes from the Life of Mary Shelley. In the shape of imaginary home movies, the film tells the story of the teenage author of Frankenstein and her husband, the romantic poet Percy Bysse Shelley. The result is an experimental feature on writing, free-love, death and memory — a playful mastery of form which pays never-wavering attention to the past’s connection with the present. Music by Zeena Parkins. Filmmaker Abigail Child will be at the screening to take questions.
