This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Clio Barnard. Barnard's work deals with the relationship between documentary and fiction, and in particular the subjectivity of recollection. His first feature film was The Arbor (2010), which celebrated playwright Andrea Dunbar's triumphs and dissected her legacy, and The Selfish Giant, which premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. The interview covered topics such as how Barnard wants to engage with the subject of previous representations of the Buttershaw Estate on stage and screen, and what was it about the techniques of verbatim theatre that struck him as being appropriate for The Arbor; the lip-synching technique employed by his actors; and whether he wishes to encourage an interpretative approach from the audience to what is on screen.

Keywords:   Clio Barnard, The Arbor, Andrea Dunbar, playwrights, The Selfish Giant, interviews, film directors, filmmakers, filmmaking, verbatim theater
