Beginning November 3, step inside The Square in the lobby of TIFF Bell Lightbox. The luminous installation is a representation of the art piece that gives the film its title.

"The Square is a sanctuary of trust and caring. Within it we all share equal rights and obligations."

Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure) took home the Palme d’Or at Cannes for this no-holds-barred satire of the postmodern art world. On the verge of opening a prestigious exhibition, imperious and self-centred curator Christian (Claes Bang) is beset by a host of troubles — including a less-than- successful online marketing campaign, a performance piece gone horribly awry, and a mugging which leaves him both shaken and determined to hunt down the perpetrator — which sets both him and his museum on a crash course with crisis.
