Tilda Swinton and her daughter Honor Swinton Byrne shine in Joanna Hogg's acclaimed semi-autobiographical drama.

Series - Contemporary World Cinema

Directed by Joanna Hogg | UK/USA | 119 minutes

Recently crowned as the best film of the year by Sight and Sound, The Souvenir (2019) stars Honor Swinton Byrne (daughter of Tilda) as a 1980s British film student who begins to find her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man (Tom Burke), much to the behest of her strict mother (Tilda Swinton). Featuring passionate performances, gorgeous cinematography, and a dreamlike narrative, don't miss your chance see Joanna Hogg's exquisite semi-autobiographical drama on the big screen.

Special thanks to our Community Partner Femme Wave for supporting this screening!


Our Contemporary World Cinema Series showcases films from the most recent festival circuit that haven’t screened in Calgary, parsing the critical discourse and following the development of key artists. Meticulously handpicked throughout the year, these selections bring fresh and important films to Calgary that would not make it here otherwise, and often never screen again. Last season we presented a diverse sampling of exciting and timely works from China, Switzerland, the Ukraine, Iran, and South Korea. You can be certain that equal riches are once again in store.

About Calgary Cinematheque

We are a non-profit film society dedicated to presenting significant, challenging, and essential works of cinema art in Calgary. During our season, which runs from October to April, we screen films weekly, in curated programs which situate each film in a thematic and historical context. We do this because we believe cinema is an essential form of artistic, social, and political expression. Audiences should be able to engage with a wide range of cinematic expression, not only with what is commercially viable. We believe in the power of sharing these experiences with other people in a theatrical setting and we strive to cultivate a community around that experience.
