He may not be at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, but Danish enfant terrible Lars von Trier will be taking over London’s BFI Southbank this month (up until 30 May) for a special film season commemorating his work in cinema – from the acclaimed to the downright controversial (who’s excited for his next project?). To celebrate this unmissable LvT retrospective taking place in our capital, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE pairs of tickets to see a von Trier film of you choice (from 24-30 May), courtesy of the British Film Institute. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
With the international success of Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000), Lars von Trier has established himself as a one of the most provocative and daring film directors working today. The founding father of Dogma 95, he made the movement’s most controversial film, The Idiots (1998), and has played a leading role in the recent resurgence of Danish cinema. Yet despite his success, von Trier remains something of a polarising and enigmatic figure hailed as the new Godard by some and a charlatan by others.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE pairs of tickets to the Lars von Trier season at the BFI Southbank, just answer the following simple question:
What is the title of von Trier’s next film?
