LUXFILMLAB - TRIANGLE OF SADNESS
Join us at Ciné Utopia Wednesday, September 7th at 7:00 PM for this month's LuxFilmLab for a screening of the last Palme d'or: Triangle of Sadness from Ruben Östlund.
After the Fashion Week, Carl and Yaya, a couple of models and influencers, are invited on a yacht for a luxury cruise. While the crew takes care of the guests, the captain refuses to leave his cabin as the famous gala dinner approaches. Events take an unexpected turn, and the balance of power is reversed when a storm arises that threatens the comfort of the passengers. Triangle of Sadness is an uninhibited satire where roles and class are inverted, and the tawdry economic value of beauty is unveiled.
“When we started to make this film I think we had one goal - to really, really try to make an exciting film for the audience and bring thought-provoking content […] We wanted to entertain them, we wanted them to ask themselves questions, we wanted them to after the screening go out and have something to talk about” Director’s statement by Ruben Östlund
Tickets for the LuxFilmLab screening are available via the Kinepolis webshop at the regular rates of Ciné Utopia*.
On the first Wednesday of every month, LuxFilmLab - a joint initiative by Luxembourg City Film Festival and Kinepolis - highlights one feature film, chosen in cooperation by LuxFilmFest's Artistic Committee and the Kinepolis programme team. A member of the Artistic Committee introduces the special LuxFilmLab screenings, aiming to support films whose release dates didn't allow for them to be selected for the Festival itself but whose artistic qualities would likely have led to their inclusion in the LuxFilmFest line-up.
*LuxFilmFest isn't involved in the commercial aspects of these screenings. Kinepolis set access to the screenings and ticket prices.
