Once the muse of the late Derek Jarman, and now of Luca Guadagnino, Tilda Swinton is set to star in a remake of seventies’ cult classic Suspiria, as famous for its atmospheric soundtrack by The Goblins, as for its extraordinary direction by giallo master, Dario Argento.

Suspiria (which translates as ‘Sighs’) follows the fortunes of a young dancer Suzy, who travels to Germany to attend a top dance school. Other young dancers are murdered, and Suzy discovers that there are supernatural forces at work in the school.

Chloë Grace Moretz is rumoured to be playing Suzy; Mia Goth and Dakota Johnson are also thought to be cast. Swinton’s role is not yet confirmed, but doubtless she will bring her trademark unsettling androgyny to bear. Amazon Studios are set to distribute the film next year, coinciding with the original Suspiria’s 40th anniversary.

Luca Guadagnino, director of A Bigger Splash and I am Love is sure to bring a gorgeously filmed high melodrama to his remake. SEEN is very curious to learn who will create the new soundtrack.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
