The Square, Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or–winning follow up to 2014’s Force Majeure, opens here this Friday with the director in person for a Q&A at the 5:30pm sscreening. Click here for tickets. 

The film was a Main Slate selection in this year’s New York Film Festival, and on the day of the premiere Östlund joined programmer Dennis Lim for one of our NYFF Live talks. He discussed his writing process, his attitude toward his characters, the influence of stand-up comedy on his work, and more.
