Tilda Swinton spoke at a press conference for her quirky art house film Memoria, which will go on a ‘never ending national tour.’

NYFF 2021: Tilda Swinton spoke at the New York Film Festival about her upcoming movie Memoria

The gimmick has certainly created a talking point – and Tilda, 60, was pictured doing just that as she answered questions about the film in New York.   

She had her blonde hair cut short and combed over to the right in its trademark style.  

The Doctor Strange actress discussed Memoria while at the event as well. 

In the new film, Swinton plays a woman who hears a loud noise and then begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing through Colombia. 

The movie will also feature Jeanne Balibar of Cold War fame and is directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

The most surprising aspect of the film though will be its availability to audience-goers. 

The film’s theatrical run will go on indefinitely. It will move from city to city, available for just one week before moving on to the next locale. 

As the film’s director Apichatpong Weerasethakul explained, ‘For Memoria, cinema experience is crucial or maybe the only way. Let’s embrace the darkness and dream, one at a time’  

‘Memoria is the perfect film for this moment,’ Swinton said. ‘Big cinema or bust…Throughout the universe, in perpetuity.’
