You Were Never Really Here: A Special Issue (
This is the definitive behind-the-scenes guide to the making of Lynne Ramsay’s fourth feature, You Were Never Really Here. Through interviews with the key creative team — Ramsay, cinematographer Tom Townend, editor Joe Bini, sound designer Paul Davies, and producer Jim Wilson — you’ll get a feel for how Ramsay collaborates with her team to realise her vision. Plus, her team tells wild behind-the-scenes stories that reveal Ramsay’s sense of humour, knack for experimentation, and genius. Through our longform essays, we’ll help you contextualise the way You Were Never Really Here depicts sensations and trauma within Ramsay’s oeuvre. We’ll also articulate how Ramsay uses every cinematic tool at her disposal to put us inside hitman Joe’s traumatized headspace.

This Seventh Row eBook grants readers exclusive access to the creative process behind Andrew Haigh’s Lean on Pete, one of the most spellbinding and gut-wrenching films of 2018. If, like us, you walked out of the film wanting to know how it came into being; how it fits into Haigh’s larger oeuvre; and how it engages the tropes of western films, this compilation is for you. To make this eBook, Seventh Row interviewed not only Haigh himself but also the film’s editor, cinematographer, and production designer about the mechanics of working creatively as a team. Write-ups of these discussions are bookended by clear-minded, insightful essays about Lean on Pete’s relationship to Kelly Reichardt’s Wendy and Lucy, and the role the film plays in extending Haigh’s longterm fascination with homecoming. These are articles you will return to again and again, as both an essential complement to the film and a way of naming its cultural contribution.
