A pioneer in American Independent Cinema, Bette Gordon is known for her bold explorations of themes related to sexuality, violence and power. Her films have been screened theatrically and in all the major film festivals, including Cannes, Berlin, Toronto and Sundance. VARIETY (1984) is a beautifully seductive film about voyeurism and pornography. LUMINOUS MOTION (2000), her next feature, was produced by Good Machine’s Ted Hope and Anthony Bregman and stars Deborah Kara Unger in a breathtaking performance. Gordon’s film HANDSOME HARRY (2010) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and opened theatrically to rave reviews at the IFC in NYC. It features a stellar ensemble cast including Steve Buscemi, Aidan Quinn, Campbell Scott, Titus Welliver, and Jamey Sheridan. Her most recent film, THE DROWNING, based on the novel Border Crossing by award winning British author Pat Barker, is a psychological thriller starring Josh Charles, Julia Stiles and Avan Jogia.
