NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK!
A reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, Roy Andersson’s ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence in the master Swedish director’s (A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE) latest film.
Pre-Recorded Q&A with director Roy Andersson and Palme d’Or winning/Oscar® nominated filmmaker Ruben Östlund (THE SQAURE, FORCE MAJEURE) to follow the film.
In Swedish with English subtitles.
