Interview with Film Director Sally Potter: ‘Women are human beings in drag’ – by Vera von Kreutzbruck – Germany

When I told British director and choreographer Sally Potter, 59, that I am from Argentina, she broke into song – “Don’t cry for me Argentina.” She has many fond memories from the time she spent in Buenos Aires in 1997 shooting her film The Tango Lesson with tango dancer Pablo Verón and herself as the protagonists. And her passion for tango has grown fervently ever since. “Next week I’m flying to London to dance with Verón,” she tells me before starting our interview at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
