With Joanna Hogg’s sequel to her highly autobiographical film The Souvenir (2019), we take a look at one of its stars – Tilda Swinton. There has always been a certain indefinable quality to her iconic acting, refusing to ever be type-casted to a particular role. Tilda has continued to evolve with her incredible range of performances, becoming the muse for many auteurs. What makes her otherworldly, androgynous presence so unique and how does it relate to the roles she picks? Listen to our personal standout moments of a truly great idiosyncratic chameleon.

Next episode

Upcoming episodes include talks with Urzula Antoniak and her new film Splendid Isolation (2022), Sara Dosa and her visceral documentary Fire of Love (2022), as well as Christian Tufdrup’s suspenseful thriller Speak No Evil (2022).
