Trailer for Upcoming Retrospective Series of Ingmar Bergman Films
Celebrating 100 years of Ingmar Bergman's Cinema. Janus Films has debuted a trailer to celebrate their upcoming Ingmar Bergman Retrospective, which will be launching at the Film Forum in NYC next month. This is a big year for legendary Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman, who would've been celebrating his 100th birthday on July 14th (he passed away in 2007). Janus is celebrating his life and work by showing almost all of his films in cinemas around the country, including his most famous features: The Seventh Seal, Fanny and Alexander, The Magic Flute, The Magician, Through a Glass Darkly, Wild Strawberries, and Winter Light. "Join Janus Films as they celebrate the centennial of Bergman's birth in 2018 with a traveling retrospective of his theatrical films, all newly restored and many never before available in DCP." So dive in.
Here's the official trailer for Janus Films' 2018 Ingmar Bergman Retrospective, direct from Vimeo:
For more info, visit Janus Films. No name is more synonymous with the postwar explosion of art-house cinema than Ingmar Bergman, a master storyteller who startled the world with his stark intensity and naked pursuit of the most profound metaphysical and spiritual questions. In a career that spanned six decades, Bergman directed more than forty films in an astonishing array of tones, ranging from comedies whose lightness and complexity betray their brooding hearts to groundbreaking formal experiments and excruciatingly intimate explorations of family relationships. This special Ingmar Bergman Retrospective, celebrating the Swedish filmmaker's 100th birthday and his entire career, will launch at the Film Forum in New York City starting February 7th, before heading to other cinemas around the US this year. Who's in?
The Serpent's Egg is one of his crazy films. I know, not the best one, but still interesting to me. Looking forward to see those mentioned again ...

Kind of perfect films for what they are.

Here, in Croatia, in Zagreb, during 1980s and 1990s, there was a movie theater, called Kinoteka (something like cinema venue for art films) where a lot of artistic films and authorial retrospectives were screened. I remember, I saw almost all of Bergman films there (I think only Fanny and Alexander were not on the program). Imagine seeing Autumn Sonata or Cries and Whispers in the cinema. Of course, there were also authors like F. Fellini, Cl. Chabrol, A. Resnais and many more. And there were always crowds of people you went with there. That place doesn't exist any more (although, there's some talk to open it again).I remember one of the last authorial name whose films I saw there was MIka (not more known brother, Aki) Kaurismaki, This trailer and your post reminded me on that pleasurable times when films were the reason to gather and enjoy time. Watching this films would be a satisfaction again. Cheers Bo ...

I understand you. Luckily, over here, there's a lot of good film festivals with films that some might call artistic (and some of them are not that at all). And audience is mostly normal, interested in film more than in using cell phones, luckily. Also, prices are not too high. So yeah, I use that opportunity. But I do believe that you have better cable tv with more choices. So yeah, we all deal with what we have. But I hope you're getting a chance of enjoying your choices. As for that film you're mentioning (also with M. Fassbender and R. Weisz), I know about it, I just didn't get the chance yet to see it. But I will. And your recommendation certainly helps. Until later, cheers ...
