Bergman dedication to include a never-seen-before film from the Swedish master
Bergman Week (June 28 – July 3), the annual celebration of the Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, has added a number of high profile names to its programme.
Andrei Zvyagintsev (The Return) will speak about his new film Elena, the art of filmmaking and Bergman’s influence on his career.
Legendary Hungarian director Istvan Szabo will give The Bergman Lecture while this year’s Master Class will be delivered by cinematographer Manuel Alberto Claro whose latest film Melancholia will screen at the event.
Organisers are also introducing Bergman’s Karlebo for the first time, a film in which Bergman interviews his father-in-law – 85-year-old industrialist Selim Karlebo. There will also be a screening of the TV series Face to Face starring Liv Ullmann as a suicidal psychiatrist – only screened once since its premiere in 1976.
Previously announced guests include psychiatrist/writer Johan Cullberg, actress Inga Landgré, director Lisa Langseth, author Henning Mankell and writer Sara Stridsberg.
The theme for this year’s Bergman Week, held on the island of Faro, is Family Snapshots.
