WILD STRAWBERRIES: HIS & HERS

Director: Ken Wardrop


Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s.

Ken Wardrop’s award-winning documentary
tells a 90-year love story in 70 different female voices. Presented in order of age, interviewees from the Midlands speak with affection, humour and occasional bemusement about the men in their lives. Luminous and beautifully framed, the film works as a generative collage: what may seem trivial in some of the early interviews acquires depth when echoed in the stories of the older speakers. Each woman offers her own hopes, plans, recollections or regrets; but it is Wardrop’s considerable achievement that, through deft repetitions in colour and composition, he leaves the viewer with the impression that he has spent 90 years in the presence of one soul.
