Global Film Series: The Square (Sweden 2017)



Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 6:30pm


Greenbriar Theater, Plemmons Student Union
263 Locust Street
Boone, NC 28608


Swedish 2017 Palme d'Or award winner and Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Film.

"Ruben Östlund is a maestro of discomfort, and The Square, which won the Palme D’Or at Cannes earlier this year, might just be his magnum opus: a two-and-a-half-hour cringe comedy about the foibles of supposed high society, unfolding as a daisy chain of exquisitely awkward episodes. This is a movie with a lot on its mind, from art to altruism to the so-called bystander effect, and it could function as a Rorschach test for its audience, reflecting viewers’ anxieties and insecurities right back at them. It’s also just really, really funny, at least for those who can find humor in humiliation."

Co-Sponsored by the Belk Library, the Office of International Education and Development,
and Appalachian Summer Festival.
