The Peace Center Will Screen THE SQUARE in the Gunter Theatre

The Peace Center Will Screen THE SQUARE in the Gunter TheatreThe Peace Center will screen The Square, a 2018 Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, in the Gunter Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m.

The Square is the Palme d'Or winner from the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The Swedish film is written and directed by Ruben Östlund and stars Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West and Terry Notary. The film runs for 150 minutes.

Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum and a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is "The Square," an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian's foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for "The Square." The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.

The Square is a poignant satirical drama reflecting our times, sense of community, moral courage, and the affluent person's need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world.
