Due to technical problems the film FORCE MAJEURE was not available earlier in January. The film has been re-scheduled for Friday, February 27th, 7:45 at Quadra Community Centre.
Directed by Ruben Ostlund, the film is in French with English subtitles.
On a skiing vacation in the French Alps, a family’s lunch is interrupted by thunderous booms from the mountain above. Husband, Tomas, is complacent, but when it appears there may be an avalanche, he grabs his cell phone and runs, leaving wife and children behind. The remainder of the film monitors the fallout from this fateful incident as it plays out between husband and wife, and spreads into the relationships of those around them.
