The Square Red carpet London Premiere
Wednesday 16th August
Film 4 Summer Screen, at Somerset House, London
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.
- Winner of the 2017 Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
- The incident where Christian's cell phone is stolen is based on the real life experience of director Ruben Östlund, who was robbed in a similar way.
- Won the Palme d'Or top prize at the Cannes film festival 2017.
