Exclusive Memoria clip shows Tilda Swinton recreating mysterious sound

Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton tries to uncover a mysterious sound in the award-winning drama film Memoria, which hits UK theaters on January 14. To celebrate its UK debut, Sovereign Films gave us an exclusive film clip. In said teaser, we see Swinton’s character in a studio trying to recreate the eerie noise that sets off all of the events in Memoria.

Created by Palme d’Or winner director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Memoria tells the story of Jessica (Swinton), who, during a quiet night in Colombia, hears a loud noise. After hearing the noise, she is captivated by its rugged quality. Jessica soon begins a journey to discover and recreate her origins, which leads her to discover an unexpected and extraordinary revelation.

Our review of the film underlines how essential the soundscape is to making the title so impressive, writing: “What makes the film memorable is its unforgettable and overwhelming sound work.” The exclusive clip below also shows just how vital noise is to the entire thriller.

In the clip, Jessica tries to describe the noise to a sound engineer to recreate it, using only her words to convey what the threatening sound looks like.

The short video shows the power sound has over Jessica and how it begins to torment her mind, causing her to question her sanity and identity in the process.

Since its premiere in July 2021 at the Cannes Film Festival, Memoria has continued to impress moviegoers and critics alike. Currently, the film holds an impressive 92% on Rotten tomatoes and was selected as the Colombian entry for Best International Feature Film for the 94th Academy Awards.

Memoria will be released in UK cinemas on January 14, 2022.
