“Oh my god! OK,” the Swedish filmmaker exclaimed after he bounded onto the stage to collect the prize.
Ostlund previously won the Jury Prize in the 2014 festival’s Un Certain Regard section for Force Majeure.
Bang plays the curator of an art museum, who sets up The Square, an installation inviting passers-by to altruism.
