EXHIBITION


Joanna Hogg’s latest film opens on Friday, June 20, 2014 for two weeks exclusively at the Film Society of Lincoln Center


On June 27 Hogg’s first two films, Archipelago and Unrelated, will open exclusively for one week


Exhibition is director Joanna Hogg’s third feature, and is structured as a cinematic mosaic of interlocking sights, sounds, exchanges, happenings great and small, everyday advances, and retreats. It is, finally, a portrait of two people in a state of change in a house that effectively becomes a third character, and an agent in that change. Hogg’s film is a rarity, at once exactingly minimal and intimately character-driven. It is also a wonderful “London movie.” The film premiered last fall at the 51st New York Film Festival and will be released theatrically on Friday, June 20, 2014 for a two-week exclusive run at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The director will be in-person for opening weekend, and is also available for interviews.    
Exhibition depicts a married middle-aged couple (Viv Albertine and Liam Gillick), both artists, who live in a beautiful modernist house in London’s Chelsea—a labyrinth, a refuge, a prison house, a battleground. As they confront their conflicts and competitions, they slowly arrive at the painful decision to sell, thus inviting interlopers into their private world. Hogg’s new film was produced by Gayle Griffiths for BBC Films and the BFI. A Kino Lorber release.

ARCHIPELAGO & UNRELATED

The Film Society of Lincoln Center will also screen British filmmaker and screenwriter Joanna Hogg’s two previous films, Archipelago (2010) and Unrelated (2007), beginning June 27, 2014 for an exclusive one-week run. Last year, Hogg was selected as one of two Emerging Artists at the 51st New York Film Festival, introducing her to American audiences as a bold, dynamic new artist.
The auteur’s character-driven films are notable for their realistic depictions of the middle class. With signature long takes and unconventional casting of both nonprofessional and professional actors (most notably Tom Hiddleston, who has appeared in all three of Hogg’s films), she’s been heralded by critics worldwide as a distinctive British voice to watch.
Hogg began her career as a photographer, before going on to study at the National Film and Television School. After 10 years directing television dramas she made her feature debut with Unrelated (2007). It won numerous awards including the FIPRESCI prize at the London Film Festival, the Guardian First Film Award, and Most Promising Newcomer at the Evening Standard British Film Awards. Her second film, Archipelago (2010), received a Special Commendation at the London Film Festival for their Best Film award, and was greeted with similar critical enthusiasm and provoked much comment and debate. In 2011 she co-founded the collective A Nos Amours, dedicated to programming overlooked, underexposed, or especially potent cinema. Hogg is based in London.

Archipelago
UK, 2010, 114m

A group stays on the island of Tresco off of Sicily, animated by resentments, jealousies, upheavals, and revelations that will ring true to anyone who has ever spent a vacation with their family. Tom Hiddleston, a mainstay of Hogg’s films, plays the discontented son at a crossroads in his life, at odds with his mother (Kate Fahy) and sister (Lydia Leonard). His priorities are reset by landscape artist Christopher Baker (who appears as himself) and the family’s wondrous new surroundings. A NYFF51 Emerging Artists Selection. A Kino Lorber release.

Unrelated
UK, 2007, 100m

Middle-aged, discontented Anna (Kathryn Worth) decides to spend her summer holiday apart from her husband, in Tuscany with her friends. As the days go by, she finds herself more attuned to their teenage children (Tom Hiddleston and his sister Emma).  Hogg’s 2007 debut immediately established her as an unusual artist with a place-specific approach to drama. A NYFF51 Emerging Artists Selection. A Kino Lorber release.
