FORCE MAJEURE Director Ruben Östlund On His Method & Meanings

Those who saw Ruben Östlund’s new film FORCE MAJEURE at Toronto or Fantastic Fest already know that Östlund is one of the most interesting filmmakers working today. In this wide-roving discussion (long, discursive interviews are now just called “master classes” apparently) he talks about instinct, face-saving, and the predominant place in image culture now occupied by YouTube.
Spoiler alert, for people who care about that kind of thing.
FORCE MAJEURE opens in Austin in November. There is an AFS Members-Only Sneak on October 20. Hope to see all of you there.
