Kate Gerova discusses Joanna Hogg's new film: Exhibition
Joanna Hogg is cool. This is fact. How do I know? Last weekend she was at the Birds Eye View FF talking about having confidence in your vision and how many years it can take to hone that, especially if you’ve suffered setbacks at the beginning.
Well the wait for Joanna Hogg on the British film scene was worth it and if years spent building your vision results in a film as assured, provocative and individual as Exhibition then let’s hope there are many more women working to make their mark.
Exhibition is an unusual film, it demands patience and isn’t always the easiest watch. This is a good thing; too many films spend their time spoon-feeding the audience, whereas Hogg assumes she has an intelligent one. And to reward us even further, the Exhibition poster by Name Creative suits the film perfectly.
Exhibition is in cinemas on Friday 25th April
