The Square

Film stills

Jei bandysite bėgti, žvėris jus sumedžios. Jei sugebėsite išsėdėti ramiai, nepajudindami nė raumens, žvėris gali jūsų nė nepastebėti. Taigi galite pasislėpti bandoje, ramūs, žinodami, kad auka taps kas nors kitas.

Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum. His next show is "The Square", an installation which invites passerby to altruism. 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 and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existencial crisis.
