The 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center has added the critically acclaimed About
Endlessness to its list of films that can be streamed online in the Opera House Screening Room.
The Opera House Screening Room provides movies and other digital programming online to its patrons in the wake of the continued COVID restrictions. The cost of streaming the films vary, depending on the film. The revenue generated is shared by the Opera House and the film studios. “Since we have not yet reopened, this is one way of providing our patrons with access to programming, and of generating income for the Opera House,” says Opera House Executive Director Rick Davis.
About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, About Endlessness presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.
Tickets to view About Endlessness are $12 per household and include an exclusive Q&A following this film with Director Roy Andersson and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ruben Östlund.
