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.
