About Endlessness + Something Happened

Friday, Dec 29 at 3:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Roy Andersson. 2019, 78 mins. DCP. With Conny Block, Jessica Louthander, Martin Serner. About Endlessness premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2019, where it won the Best Director award. Its U.S. release was delayed by the COVID outbreak, and somehow the bleak desolation of the pandemic landscape was a fitting complement to Andersson’s sardonic vision. About Endlessness is (ironically, for the title) the director’s shortest, most distilled film, with memorable images including a couple floating over a war-torn city, a man weeping openly on a crowded bus explaining that he doesn’t know what he wants, Adolf Hitler in his underground bunker, and three young women breaking into dance to entertain the customers at an outdoor cafe.

Something Happened
