Thursday 15.03.18. – 8pm: The Idiots | A Lars Von Trier Film
The Idiots (Idioterne) – Dogme #2
(Danish with English Subtitles)
Karen is dining alone at a crowded restaurant when a group of people who seem to be mentally disabled enter and disrupt everyone’s meal. Discerning that they are not what they seem, Karen returns with the group to the large communal house they inhabit with charismatic Stoffer. This group of intellectuals is attempting to challenge bourgeois ideology by behaving like “idiots” in public. Karen, however, may take the act further than any of them had planned.
The Idiots is Lars Von Trier’s first film made in compliance with the Dogme 95 Manifesto, and is also known as Dogme #2. It is the second film in Von Trier’s Golden Heart Trilogy, preceded by Breaking the Waves (1996) and succeeded by Dancer in the Dark (2000). It is among the first films to be shot entirely with digital cameras.
