“The Square” wins Palme d’Or in Cannes – with VFX from Stockholm

Ruben Östlund’s feature film “The Square” won the top prize – Palme d’Or – at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Swedish director Östlund’s fifth full-length movie is a satire of the art world and confused male identity. Goodbye Kansas helped with the VFX; we reshaped the Royal Palace in Stockholm into an Art Museum, and also created some rather upsetting action within the Square art installation that plays a significant role in the film. As co-producers, we are truly happy for Ruben and his team. Their achievement is also a significant milestone for Swedish film; the first Palme d’Or in 25 years! The last time a Swedish director won the prestigious award was in 1951.
