An exploration of intertextuality in Orlando through themes of gender and identity. I have chosen this approach as the most obvious, yet complex and interesting theme in Sally Potter's and Virginia Woolf's work. Same person/Same story. No difference. Just a different sex/Just a different medium.

Using different color pallets within costumes and set designs help to portray the different epochs the film takes the watcher through. Through these different examples, one sees gold, reds, and oranges within the Elizabethan period and then later on towards the end of the film, one can view only blues and greens as Orlando enters into the Victorian period. The use of different colors helps guide the watcher throughout the vast amount of time traveled in Orlando.
The purpose of this pathway is to 'reflect upon and illustrate' the process of adapting Orlando.
