Winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, THE SQUARE is a satirical black comedy surrounding the publicity campaign for an art installation in a renowned Swedish museum. Many scenes in the film were inspired by actual events, the main being an installation that the director made with the film’s producer Kalle Boman in 2014. The absurdities that inhabit the contemporary art world provide a perfect backdrop for the film’s humour and give it permission to play with some edgy scenarios that are at times surreal. “This movie really brings some gobsmackingly weird and outrageous spectacle, with moments of pure showstopping freakiness.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian. Co-starring American actress, Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men, Top of the Lake, The Handmaid’s Tale).
