Film description

Winner of Sundance 2019's Grand Jury Prize and executive produced by Martin Scorsese –The Souvenir is the compelling, semi-autobiographical drama from award-winning director/writer Joanna Hogg (Exhibition).

A young, quietly ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne) embarks on her first serious love affair with a charismatic and mysterious man (Tom Burke). She tries to disentangle fact from fiction as she surrenders to the relationship, which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams. 

For selected screenings on the 6th, 7th, 8th and 12th of September, The Souvenir will be preceded by a recorded introduction with director Joanna Hogg, from Bird's Eye View, as part of their Reclaim The Frame project (see SPECIAL tag in showtimes).
