THE SEASON OF BERGMAN
Presented in association with the Swedish Film Institute and the Ingmar Bergman Foundation. All restorations are courtesy of the Swedish Film Institute and Janus Films.

One of the true giants of world cinema, Swedish director Ingmar Bergman (July 14, 1918 - July 30, 2007) wrote and directed more than 60 films in his lauded career and is commonly cited as a major influence on celebrated filmmakers from Stanley Kubrick to Andrei Tarkovsky to Woody Allen. The son of a Lutheran minister, Bergman’s work in theater - and later film - reveals the enormous influence his austere upbringing had on his sensitive personality. From his initial films in the late 1940s (such as THIRST), he exhibited a keen awareness of the conflicts astir in the soul of the individual.

As his repertoire of films expanded with such masterpieces as THE SEVENTH SEAL, THE MAGICIAN and THE VIRGIN SPRING, on through HOUR OF THE WOLF, PERSONA and later AUTUMN SONATA and FANNY AND ALEXANDER, Bergman became ever more incisive and rigorous in his study of the human psyche. He also collected a company of recurring collaborators, among them cinematographer Sven Nykvist and actors Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann, Bibi Andersson, Gunnar Björnstrand and Erland Josephson. As Bergman once wrote, he saw in film “a language that literally is spoken from soul to soul in expressions that, almost sensuously, escape the restrictive control of the intellect.”
