HOUR OF THE WOLF
VARGTIMMEN
1968, Park Circus, 90 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

Artist Max von Sydow and wife Liv Ullmann take a trip to a desolate island and quickly become troubled by eerie visions - are they hallucinations or something more sinister? Ingmar Bergman combines elements of the horror film with his usual preoccupation with relationships in crisis to create a stunning work. In Swedish with English subtitles.


SFI Restoration!

THE SERPENT’S EGG
1977, Park Circus/MGM, 118 min, USA/West Germany, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

A large U.S./West German co-production shot entirely in English with a fascinating mystery at the center of its plot, THE SERPENT’S EGG is an underappreciated anomaly in Bergman’s filmography. Starring David Carradine alongside Bergman regular Liv Ullmann, the film takes place in 1920s Berlin, as Nazi sentiment was beginning to brew just below the surface of German society. While it was originally panned by critics (perhaps due to its significant departure from his other work), the film offers an honest reflection on the director’s early memories of fascism during his time in Germany as a teenager.


Both films with English subtitles. | Screening formats: 35mm (HOUR OF THE WOLF), DCP (THE SERPENT’S EGG)
