STOCKHOLM — The late Ingmar Bergman’s legacy will be celebrated in a free event at the Swedish Film Institute Oct 6-7.
During “Long Live Bergman!” the multihyphenate’s collaborators Harriet Andersson, Kabi Laretei and Gunnar Fischer will talk about their work.
Some 20 of his film and TV shows will unspool, including, in a rare screening, the 1950 feature “This Can’t Happen Here” (aka “High Tension”), the only one of Bergman’s films that he publicly denounced.
Event includes the first public exhibition of Bergman’s personal archives, an exhibition of the new Bergman stamps, the multimedia performance “Laterna Magica,” several behind-the-scenes docus from Bergman shoots, an exhibition of the original posters for his films and a screening of soap commercials that Bergman made in the 1950s.
“Long Live Bergman!” is organized by the Swedish Film Institute in collaboration with the government, the Ingmar Bergman Foundation, Norstedts, Svensk and Swedish Television.
