'The Square' revolves around the story of a curator who hires a public relations team to elevate the publicity of Swedish museum. The intervention of the public relation team does not go as planned, bringing about a great deal of chaos in the museum.

Upon its screening at Cannes, 'The Square' emerged as a critical success, and spectators lauded Ostland for his uncompromising cinematic language and realistic making style. After the screening, Guardian's Peter Bradshaw gave the movie four stars out of five, stating that 'The Square' is a daringly surreal satire.

The movie is based on Jo Nesbø's crime novel of the same name.

'The Snowman' features the cat and mouse game between a detective and a serial killer who appears only during winter.
