About Endlessness | Dendy Cooparoo
David Ehrlich from Indiewire once said, “Give Roy Andersson 76 minutes, and he’ll give you the universe”, because that’s what he’s done with his latest upcoming film, About Endlessness. Releasing on the 4th of March, Andersson dives and reflects on everything about human existence and life, in its beauty, cruelty, and everything in between. If you’ve ever thought about how vulnerable our existence is, or how films never display the “insignificant” moments of life, this is an ode to these moments in history. The ones that seem so inconsequential, but ultimately make up our lives.
