Film Screening: INGMAR BERGMAN THROUGH THE CHOREOGRAPHER’S EYE

SAT—October 6—3 PM, free
51 min. In Swedish with English subtitles
As a film director, Bergman was also a choreographer. Throughout his films, and his theater works, Bergman’s “invisible hand” would constantly direct actors in a slow dance, showing his refined choreographed language in gestures such as the beautiful movement of a head, or an arm, or the blink of an eyelid. Ingmar Bergman Through the Choreographer’s Eye, directed by Fredrik Stattin, presents performances by four Swedish choreographers interpreting Ingmar Bergman through dance: Alexander Ekman, Pär Isberg, Pontus Lidberg and Joakim Stephenson. These choreographers, with principal dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet, have created four unique dance performances reflecting on human relations and intense feelings — the unspoken word transformed into movement. Linked with images of the epic natural beauty of Fårö, where the choreographers created the works, and Bergman’s poetic home Hammars, the documentary features voice narration of the master himself — Ingmar Bergman — revealing his thoughts about movements and music.
