“Ms. Hogg has outdone herself with an even stronger film about grief, self-discovery, the daunting uncertainties of the creative process and, before and after everything else, the mysterious power of the movie medium.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

The Souvenir Part II (Joanna Hogg, 2021, 108 min, UK, English, Color, DCP)
In the aftermath of her tumultuous relationship with a charismatic and manipulative older man, Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) begins to untangle her fraught love for him in making her graduation film, sorting fact from his elaborately constructed fiction. A film about finding one’s artistic inspiration and individuality that avoids every possible cliché, The Souvenir Part II is a portrait of the artist that transcends the halting particulars of everyday life — a singular, alchemic mix of memoir and fantasy.
Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
