Arts, Culture & Fun: Celebration of Ingmar Bergman - Movie Screening: Autumn Sonata
Saturday, August 11, 2018
8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.
Join us this summer for special movie screenings of Ingmar Bergman films, part of a worldwide celebration to mark the 100-year anniversary of the birth of renowned director and writer Ingmar Bergman (1918 - 2007).
Autumn Sonata was the only collaboration between cinema’s two great Bergmans: Ingmar, the iconic director of The Seventh Seal, and Ingrid, the monumental star of Casablanca. The grand dame, playing an icy concert pianist, is matched beat for beat in ferocity by the filmmaker’s recurring lead Liv Ullmann, as her eldest daughter. Over the course of a day and a long, painful night that the two spend together after an extended separation, they finally confront the bitter discord of their relationship. This cathartic pas de deux, evocatively shot in burnished harvest colors by the great Sven Nykvist, ranks among Ingmar Bergman’s major dramatic works.
