The Square
Zabaltegi - Tabakalera - Opening Night Film

Christian is a divorced father devoted to spending time with his two daughters. He's a curator at a contemporary art museum, and the kind of guy who drives and electric car and supports the big humanitarian causes. He’s currently working on his next show, entitled The Square, an installation inviting passers-by to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes it’s hard to live up to your own ideals: Christian’s meltdown in response to the theft of his mobile phone doesn’t exactly leave him in the best light... Meanwhile, the museum’s PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for The Square: the response is overblown and propels Christian headlong into an existential crisis. Golden Palm at Cannes.

BIOGRAPHY

Ruben Östlund (Styrsö, 1974) debuted in feature films with Gitarrmongot (The Guitar Mongoloid), winner of the FIPRESCI Prize in Moscow in 2005. His films, De ofrivilliga (Involuntary, 2008) and Play (2011) screened at the Cannes Festival, where Turist (Force Majeure, 2014) received the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize. In his oeuvre he reveals a penchant for long sequences, a feature which has become the stamp of his work, and for a sense of humour when portraying human behaviour. The Square won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Festival.
