Synopsis

We have to go back to the mid-eighties to find Joanna Hogg’s first work, where a very young Tilda Swinton, new as the director herself, plays a girl who literally delves into the pages ofCaprice, her favourite fashion magazine. Through images and articles, the young woman lives a dream adventure much less glamorous —and much more terrifying— than she thought.

Double program with The Souvenir II.

Joanna Hogg

She mixes audiovisual experimentation with the shooting of mainstream television products. She made her feature film debut in 2007 with Unrelated, many years after having directed the short film Caprice, starring Tilda Swinton. From here, she began a radically personal filmography that led her to be considered one of the greatest names in contemporary cinema and to win a Jury Prize at Sundance, among others.
