SCANDINAVIA HAS been home to some of the finest TV drama of recent years, and it also has a long history of quality film-making, and the Galway Film Society will screen a recent example in the Town Hall Theatre this weekend.
Swedish film, Force Majure, which took the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, will be screened in the Town Hall Theatre this Sunday at 8pm. This is a black-comedy about a family holidaying in a ski resort. An avalanche causes the husband to bolt, leaving his wife to rescue the children, and nothing is simple after that. Indeed everyone has to negotiate physically and emotionally uncomfortable territory.
