With films such as FORCE MAJEURE (2014), PLAY (2011) and INVOLUNTARY (2008), Swedish director Ruben Östlund has spent his career on confronting the audience with the truth. In his new film, which was awarded the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes festival, he gives a sharp critic of the modern Scandinavian society through the prism of contemporary art. THE SQUARE is a surprising, hilarious drama which tells the story of Christian (Claes Bang), a museum director in Stockholm, whose life unravels after he loses his cell phone.
