The illustrious life of Dora Gordine (1895-1991) – sculptor, designer, and an international woman of mystery.
In her heyday, Gordine was lauded by the critics as one of the world’s most talented sculptors. Born in Latvia, raised and trained in Estonia, rose to fame in Paris via the Far East, she finally settled in London, where her steady rise continued well beyond her contemporaries. By way of marriage to the son of an Earl, Gordine also pushed her way to the top of the English aristocracy, having one of her statues unveiled in 1963 by Queen Elisabeth II herself. The documentary explores key chapters of Gordine’s life while constantly inquiring: who was this woman?
Feature-length documentary due to be released in spring 2015.
