Lars von Trier’s

THE KINGDOM EXODUS

$10 Members | $15 Public

In 2022, Lars von Trier has directed a third season of his incomparable The Kingdom, which began in 1994 and helped establish the Danish filmmaker’s reputation for jolting imagery and penchant for layered, unpredictable storytelling. The show’s legions of fans will be delighted by his dark-comic return to the misfit world of Copenhagen’s Rigshospitalet, once again ruled equally by sinister supernatural visions and at times hilarious administrative incompetence. This time, the hospital’s workers are aware of having been in a show, complaining that the scoundrel Lars von Trier has given them a bad name. Our guides to the increasing madness are Karen (Bødil Jorgensen), a curious somnambulist who voluntarily checks herself in after wandering to the Kingdom in her sleep, and the new Swedish head neurosurgeon, Stig Jr, (Mikael Persbrandt), desperate to follow in the footsteps of his father, the original series’ dastardly Dr. Stig Helmer. We are pleased to offer the opportunity to theatrically experience all five episodes, featuring the return of such original cast members as Ghita NorbyPeter MygindSøren Pilmark, and Udo Kier, as well as appearances from Alexander Skarsgard. (Denmark, 2022, 291 min., color, Danish and Swedish with English subtitles, DCP | Dir. Lars von Trier) Please note: There will be a 30-minute intermission during the screening.
