Joanna Hogg

Joanna Hogg began to incessantly shoot experimental Super 8 films after borrowing a camera from her mentor Derek Jarman. She went on to study direction at the National School of Film and Television and her graduation piece Caprice starred a then-unknown Tilda Swinton. Hogg’s depiction of unarguably middle-class characters has prompted some commentators to see her work as spearheading a new type of social realism in British film. In 2019, the Thessaloniki IFF presented a tribute to her work.
