Event description

Description

On Tuesday, February 20, Scandinavia House will be screening a double feature event of films by Ruben Östlund: the 2014 film Force Majeure and this year's Oscar Contender for Best Foreign Language Film, The Square.

A Magnolia Pictures release, The Square is a gripping sociological suspense story that dives into the ethics of moral responsibility, privilege, and media sensationalism. Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two, who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next exhibition, “The Square,” is an installation that invites passersby to perform altruistic deeds. But sometimes it’s difficult to live up to your own ideals: When Christian’s phone is stolen, his foolish response to the crime drags him into an embarrassing situation, and when a PR campaign by the museum elicits an overblown reaction from the public, “The Square” sends Christian into an existential crisis.

Join us afterward for a presentation by the director, Ruben Östlund, who will be conducting a Q&A on the film. Our thanks to Magnolia Pictures and The Consulate General of Sweden in New York for making this screening possible.

The Square has received numerous distinctions since its premiere, as the Palme D’Or Winner at the Cannes Film Festival, 2017, winner of Best European Film and five other awards at the 2017 European Film Awards, and this year’s Swedish Foreign Language Film candidate for the 2018 Oscars. It has also been featured at the Toronto International Film Festival, 2017; Fantastic Fest, 2017; and New York Film Festival, 2017.
