She was attracted to these authors&́#x80;”their life of poetry, politics and sexual invention&́#x80;” inspired by previous fictionalizing of home movies in her Covert Action (1984) and The Future is Behind You (2004). She worked with non-actors, the seasons and the extraordinary architecture and landscapes of Italy where the Shelleys were in exile for six of their eight years together. The result is a feature film UNBOUND: gorgeous, emotional, creatively combining new technologies with cinematic language. ..Digressive, looped, unpredictable, symphonic UNBOUND is a poignant and deep exploration of women and creativity, focused on the teenage author of Frankenstein. The history of the Shelleys has drama, degradation, and scandal set within radicalized politics, sexual and class rebellion and the lives of working artists.
