New About Endlessness trailer from acclaimed director Roy Andersson
Magnolia Pictures has revealed the new trailer for About Endlessness, the latest startling comedy/drama from acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Roy Andersson (Songs from the Second Floor, You, the Living, A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence). Check out the About Endlessness trailer in the player below!
About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.
The film was written and directed by Roy Andersson, produced by Johan Carlsson and Pernilla Sandström, and stars Martin Serner, Jessica Louthander, Tatiana Delaunay, Anders Hellström, Jan-Eje Ferling, Bengt Bergius and Thore Flygel.
Magnolia Pictures will release About Endlessness in theaters and on demand April 30, 2021.
