Rosemary Lee  

Infanta was a magical vision of the secret life and imagination of an eight year old girl. Set in a formal but neglected garden the girl dances with compelling assurance as she leads the camera deeper into the garden and her own perceptions.
Her affinity with her surroundings draws us into her world with an enthralling intimacy that has become a signature of Lee and Anderson’s film. Made as a companion piece to their earlier film boy.
