Trailer Watch: 25th Anniversary 4K Restoration of Lars von Trier’s The Idiots

MUBI has released a new trailer for the 25th anniversary 4K restoration of Lars von Trier‘s dark comedy The Idiots. The only film that von Trier made under the Dogme 95 “Vow of Chastity” (and the second official Dogme film, or Dogme #2), The Idiots centers on a commune in the Danish suburbs where members aim to disrupt wider “bourgeoisie” society by pretending to have mental and physical ailments in public. It is the second film in von Trier’s Golden Heart Trilogy, preceded by Breaking the Waves and followed by Dancer in the Dark.

The Idiots will open theatrically at Metrograph in New York City on June 16 before having its exclusive streaming premiere on MUBI July 7. Watch the trailer above.
