PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED: THE SOUVENIR
Our Previously Unreleased program brings films to our cinema that have garnered acclaim at film festivals worldwide, but for some reason weren’t released in the national theaters. Winner of Sundance 2019’s Grand Jury Prize and crowned as Sight & Sound’s number 1 film of 2019, The Souvenir is the compelling, semi-autobiographical drama from award-winning director/writer Joanna Hogg (Unrelated, Archipelago, 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.
