Photographer, cinematographer and writer Lili Wilde was a restless poet in Lisbon, the Portuguese capital still bruised by 48 years of dictatorship, when at 21 she veered to London as a correspondent for Lisbon’s weekly Blitz and as photographer for Melody Maker, the world-renowned music paper. Her work has since graced publications in multiple countries, including The Times of London, The Guardian and The Washington Post; along with music biographies, book jackets and album artwork. She photographed Tom Hanks, Oasis, Terry Pratchett, Trent Reznor, Marilyn Manson, Kurt Cobain, Richard Dawkins, Luciano Pavarotti, Bjork, Nick Cave, Paul McCartney, Lou Reed, Prince, Janet Jackson, and the Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman, among many others. She collaborated with Greg Palast, the multiple award-winning and four-time New York Times bestselling author and investigative journalist, as producer and photographer, making Picture of the Day in 2006 in the Publishers of America Weekly. In 2009 she worked with filmmaker Matthew Mishory on his experimental portrait of Derek Jarman, Delphinium. The film was co-produced and photographed by Wilde on a variety of media in Los Angeles and on stages across London and at Dungeness. Delphinium premiered at the 2009 Reykjavik International Film Festival, in London at the Raindance Film Festival, and had its California premiere at the 2010 Frameline International Film Festival in San Francisco. It won the Eastman Kodak Grand Prize for Best Short Film at the 2010 United States Super 8 and DV Film Festival and in 2011 was permanently installed in the British Film Institute’s National Film Archive in the special collection Beautiful Things. The film received two sold-out screenings at the BFI Southbank as part of the British Film Institute 2011 London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. It was released theatrically in Berlin at the Kino Moviemento and on DVD and VOD in the UK, North America, Germany, and France. In 2014, the film was re-released by the BFI as part of the Jarman 2014 celebration and it was later released by the BFI on its streaming platform BFI Player. Wilde is writing two novels –a multi-generational Portuguese story exploring the plight of women under fascism; and a dead man’s hallucinatory ride through contemporary London, her adoptive metropolis.
