Virginia Woolf on video

biographical and documentary archive films

Virginia Woolf on Video is something of a tease title, I admit. But this page pulls together film archives and footage of documentaries on Virginia Woolf plus the Bloomsbury Group and their social context, and I hope it will save you many frustrated minutes jumping from one clip to another on YouTube.

This biographical study reveals a rich visual record of Virginia Woolf, but it also shows the places where she lived and historical footage of London in the early years of the twentieth century.

The Mind and Times of Virginia Woolf

This is a feature documentary with comments by Hermione Lee, Francis Spalding, Molly Hite, and Nigel Nicolson. This puts rather a lot of emphasis on Woolf’s mental instability.
