This new European film from celebrated filmmaker Roy Andersson (A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence) is 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, About Endlessness presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence. In Swedish with subtitles. (76 mins)
Bonus footage: In addition to the feature, there will be an exclusive pre-recorded discussion between filmmaker Roy Andersson and Palme d’Or winning/Oscar nominated filmmaker Ruben Östlund (The Square, Force Majeure).

“A mesmerizing odyssey to the heart of existence… Swedish auteur Roy Andersson’s latest is anothermasterpiece of the human condition.” – Peter Bradshw, The Guardian
