Force Majeure director Ruben Östlund returns with a knife-sharp satire on art, culture and communication in the digital age. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, The Square stars Claes Bang (The Bridge), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Dominic West (The Wire).

Christian (Bang) is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm. He’s gearing up to launch their next show, ‘The Square’, a daring installation examining altruism and our duty to help others. However, Christian’s own views on social responsibility are put to the test when he becomes the victim of a scam, forcing him to question the world around him and his place in it.

 

There will be 15-20 minutes of trailers and adverts before the screening (not included in duration).
