Sally Potter’s <i>The Gold Diggers</i>, made with an all women crew, was as eagerly awaited as any recent British independent film. In it, two women search for their own kind of “gold”: the meaning of money and capital, symbols and exchange, their own identity and history. Julie Christie co-stars as a woman in search of her own memories, a past interwoven with the history of cinema itself. But in part the film is a musical adventure, drawing on elements of performance, dance and theater where spontaneity and play supersede structure and narrative. Potter has called <i>The Gold Diggers</i> “a musical describing a female quest” posing questions “about the connections between gold, money and woman; about the illusion of female powerlessness, about the actual search for gold and the inner search for gold; about imagery in the unconscious and its relationship to the power of cinema; looking at childhood and memory and seeing the history of cinema itself as our collective memory of how we see ourselves and how we as women are seen.”
