The Square (CTC)

Winner - 2017 Cannes Palme d'Or
Oscar nomination - Best Foreign Language Film

Meet Christian, the respected curator of a prestigious contemporary art gallery. A divorced but devoted father of two, Christian drives an electric car, says all the right things, supports good causes, and is on the verge of opening his new show “The Square” - an installation which invites passers-by to examine their willingness to help others.

But disaster strikes when Christian’s phone is stolen, his new performance art piece turns dangerously awry, and his marketing campaign goes viral for all the wrong reasons.  As Christian desperately tries to hold onto his own ego while his comfortable life spirals out of control, his good intentions are increasingly abandoned, with hilarious results.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the most talked-about film of the season, “The Square” is a laugh-out-loud comedy for the modern age - a merciless satire of modern art, hypocrisy, and fragile male ego.
