Joanna Hogg: Joanna Hogg premiered her movie 'Souvenir Part II' at the Cannes Film Festival.

Director Joanna Hogg premiered her film 'The Souvenir Part II' at the Cannes Film Festival. The parts of the movies are based ib semi-autobiography- a coming-of-age self-portrait reflected through time and cinema. The movie is based on a period in Hogg's life in the late '80s when she was in film school in London. In the first part of the movie, a romance with an older man who has a hidden drug addiction ends tragically. In the second part of the movie, Julie devotes herself to making her final student film about that experience while processing her grief. “I don’t even feel sure I have completed it,” Hogg says, a little surprised to feel that way. “It’s funny because I have completed it. I’m not making another part. I don’t know that it’s really dawned on me that it’s finished.”

“I feel more emboldened,” says Hogg. “I seem on the surface to be quite reserved and a bit shy — that’s how I feel, anyway. But when it comes to making my work, I’m like a dog with a bone. It’s my lifeblood.”
