A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

Screened: Friday 23rd October 2015 at 7.30pm
Director: /images/pigeon.png
Starring: Roy Anderson
Like his previous features Songs From The Second Floor and You, The Living, master Swedish director Roy Andersson takes up the theme of “being a human being” with this meticulously crafted, dreamlike black comedy. Sam and Jonathan, a pair of hapless novelty salesman, take us on a kaleidoscopic tour of the human condition in reality and fantasy, unfolding in Sweden en route to battle, and a diabolical metaphor journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, life’s grandeur, and the humor and tragedy hidden within us all.
