North American Premiere

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, The Square is a fierce satire of the contemporary art world, and the fourth feature by Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund. The documentary highlights the creative process of a director passionate about sociology, as well as The Square’s role as a critique of Swedish society: with a growing number of people begging on the street, this cradle of Scandinavian social democracy is seeing a rise of individualism and inequality.
