IU CINEMA: "The Square"
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, The Square is a surreal, satirical drama set in a contemporary art museum where an installation meant to promote altruism—providing a symbolic space where only good things can happen—sets off an existential crisis engulfing the museum’s curator, as well as the museum. Tensions are exacerbated when the museum’s PR team goes too far with publicity plans for the exhibition, sparking a public uproar and exposing the hypocrisy of the media. In English and Swedish with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
