The Square is a satirical drama that bespeaks the uncertain times in which we live. This film challenges our notions morality, questions the fortitude of community, and inspects the gritty intersection of affluence and ego.
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 show is “The Square,” an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian’s foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for “The Square.” The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.
Written and directed by Ruben Östlund. Starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Terry Notary.
Following the film, Terry Notary, an actor and movement artist from films like Planet of the Apes, Avatar, and most recently, The Square, will be in conversation with Elizabeth Thomas, director of public engagement, FAMSF
