Guests attending the festival including Richard Ayoade and Catherine Breillat, while one of the themes focuses on The Seventh Seal.
British film-maker Richard Ayoade and French director Catherine Breillat are among the guests set to attend this year’s Bergman Week, running June 23-29 on Fårö, Sweden.
Ayoade will be in attendance for the Swedish premiere of his second feature The Double as well as talking about how Bergman influences his work, while Breillat’s latest film Abuse of Weakness will also be screened.
Other guests include director Bille August, who won the Palme d’Or for The Best Intentions about Ingmar Bergman’s parents.
Themes this year include Mindmapping: The Seventh Seal, taking a closer look at the film from iconic and historic aspects, and dance with choreographer Alexander Ekman visiting Fårö with Ferry Scenes
Ekman’s installation, which will be performed on the ferry between Fårö and Fårösund, is based on Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage and explores whether it is possible to translate Bergman’s script into movements.
