The Idiots

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Lars Von Trier, Lars Von Trier, Lars Von Trier
1999 / 117min / DCP

Lars von Trier’s only feature made under the Dogme 95 “Vows of Chastity”, The Idiots centers on a Danish commune whose members aim to disrupt bourgeois society by spontaneously feigning physical or mental disabilities in public — including a new recruit (Bodil Jørgensen) motivated by a secret sorrow. Previously censored upon release, this darkly comic and ultimately devastating film is now presented restored and uncut, as a highly provocative work which contemplates the very value of provocation.

The Idiots has been remastered in 4K by Zentropa Post Production.
