A Pigeon Sat on a Branch
Reflecting on Existence

Screening:
Tuesday, October 20, 9:00 pm
Uptown Theatre, Screen 1

Written and Directed by Roy Andersson

Sweden/Germany/Norway/France / 2014 / Comedy/Drama / Rated PG for brief sexuality and some disturbing images / Swedish with English subtitles / 100 min.

Master Swedish director Roy Andersson takes up the theme of “being a human being” with this meticulously crafted, dreamlike black comedy. Featuring Sam and Jonathan, a pair of hapless novelty salesmen, we are taken on a kaleidoscopic tour of the human condition which unfolds in absurdist episodes: a sing-along at a 1940s beer hall, a randy flamenco teacher, a thirsty King Charles XII of Sweden en route to battle, and a diabolical metaphor for the horrors inflicted by European colonialism. Ultimately, it is a journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, life’s grandeur, and the humour and tragedy hidden within us all.
