[OM DET OÄNDLIGA]


Swedish auteur Roy Andersson's (A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE) latest 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. "Give Roy Andersson 76 minutes, and he'll give you the universe." (IndieWire). Winner, Silver Lion, Best Director, 2019 Venice Film Festival; Winner, Best Director, 2020 Dublin International Film Festival. Official Selection, 2019 Toronto International Film Festival; 2020 Palm Springs and Rotterdam film festivals.
