Produced by Dublin-based Element Pictures, THE SOUVENIR PT2 is director Joanna Hogg’s semi-autobiographical drama, in which a young film-maker finds her creative path after a doomed love affair. In this flipside second instalment of Hogg’s most personal and surprisingly most accessible work, the word “souvenir” takes on a rather more metatextual meaning. This time the film itself becomes a kind of cinematic keepsake, a memory of a memory (or a dream of a dream?) set in the aftermath of Julie’s relationship with the heroin-addicted Anthony.
