Waiting For

UK, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 19)

Director: Anne Basser

Presented by the British Film Institute with £1,000 to make a film, and despite her total lack of experience, Stephanie Turner attempts to capture the essence of 'reality' by allowing the camera to film everything before it: herself, her team, an interfering policeman, a raucous brawl in a pub, and the breakdown of her relationship with her boyfriend.
