Directed by Leslie Thornton | 2016
“The Great Invisible works to simultaneously embed and critique forms of narrative and to interrogate the category of biography. It is a difficult film, refusing easy linearity and performing an intense work on the image—its pleasure, its legibility, its historicity.”
—Senses of Cinema

Thornton returns to her research into the life of adventurer Isabelle Eberhardt, who dressed as a man to travel freely in 19th-century North Africa, first explored in There Was An Unseen Cloud Moving. In The Great Invisible, her investigation of Eberhardt takes the form of an open-ended contemplation of historical and cultural representation.
