The Souvenir, Joanna Hogg’s much-anticipated follow-up to 2013’s Exhibition and a breakthrough from the year’s Sundance Film Festival, is an autobiographical portrait of the artist as a young woman in early 1980s London. Starring Honor Swinton Byrne, Tilda Swinton, and Tom Burke, The Souvenir is a moving bildungsroman about the ties that inexplicably bind; it is also an absorbing evocation of a time, place, and national mood.

We presented a sneak preview of the film last week ahead of its official theatrical release this weekend. Following the screening, Joanna Hogg, Honor Swinton Byrne, and Tilda Swinton joined Director of Programming Dennis Lim for a Q&A.
