Goodbye Thelma Jessica Bardsley

Films index A to Z

There’s the road, and there’s walking. Dialogue, and boxes. Images from the film Thelma and Louise are intercut with footage shot by the filmmaker, and the fictional characters’ voices strangely echo her silent thoughts. After The Blazing World (RIDM 2013), Jessica Bardsley explores another facet of femininity: solo travel. Worry, looks from others and ruminations mix with memories and fantasies borrowed from the fictional imagination. Comprising mainly images in negative, the film no longer seems to make a distinction, even in its form, transforming into a mysterious and disturbing meandering. An inner exploration that broaches a seldom-discussed topic in sensitive and inspired fashion.
