Ingmar Bergman : a season of films at swedenborg house: 13, 20, 27 september

Following the success of last year’s season of Robert Bresson films, we are pleased to announce the forthcoming screening of three films by the great Swedish director INGMAR BERGMAN.

Well known for his interest in Emanuel Swedenborg, Bergman wrote and directed over fifty feature films, and from the late 1950s his work has since become canonical to ‘art-house’ movie culture, academic cinema studies and film clubs all over the world. In addition to filmmaking he has also directed and produced numerous plays, including a famous interpretation of August Strindberg’s Inferno, itself heavily influenced by the work of Swedenborg. The films selected for screening at Swedenborg house all feature images and symbols redolent of ideas found in Swedenborg, as well as being reflective of the great early period of Bergman’s cinematic career.

The Swedenborg Film Season is now an annual event organized/curated by Stephen McNeilly and Nora Foster, with Howard Turner serving as in-house projectionist.
