★Best Director at the 76th Venice Film Festival

Swedish film maestro Roy Andersson scooped the Golden Lion Award with his compelling A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence, part of his career-defining “Living Trilogy”. The trilogy showcases his own vocabulary – visually minimal and stylish, taken from fixed camera positions, based on time and space juxtaposition, absurd humour and acting.

The 76-year-old master once again fascinates with this recent work, which is based on the universal classic One Thousand and One Nights. This sixth feature, a reflection upon endlessness, earned him the Best Director award at the 76th Venice International Film Festival.

Dir:Roy Andersson

About the Director

One of Northern Europe’s most renowned art film directors to date, Roy Andersson was born in Gothenburg, Sweden. His first feature, A Swedish Love Story (1970), became an immediate success. He then broke from his neo-realist beginnings with the more expressionistic Giliap (1975). For the next 25 years, Andersson worked in advertising and funded his own independent filmmaking. From 2000, he fascinated the world with the “Living Trilogy”: Songs from the Second Floor (2000); You, the Living (2007); and A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2014).
