THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY
SÅSOM I EN SPEGEL
1961, Janus Films, 89 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman
Winner of the 1962 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and featuring an astonishing lead performance by Harriet Andersson, Ingmar Bergman’s film presents an unflinching vision of a family’s near disintegration. While vacationing on a remote island retreat, a family’s already fragile ties are tested when daughter Karin (Andersson) discovers her father has been using her schizophrenia for his own literary means. As she drifts in and out of lucidity, Karin’s father (Gunnar Björnstrand), husband (Max von Sydow) and younger brother (Lars Passgård) are unable to prevent her harrowing descent into the abyss of mental illness. In Swedish with English subtitles.

THE SILENCE
TYSTNADEN
1963, Janus Films, 95 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman
Two sisters — the sickly, intellectual Ester (Ingrid Thulin) and the sensual, pragmatic Anna (Gunnel Lindblom) — travel by train with Anna’s young son Johan (Jorgen Lindstrom) to a foreign country seemingly on the brink of war. Attempting to cope with their alien surroundings, the sisters resort to their personal vices while vying for Johan’s affection, and in so doing sabotage any hope for a future together. Regarded as one of the most sexually provocative films of its day, this drama offers a brilliant, disturbing vision of emotional isolation in a suffocating spiritual void.

WINTER LIGHT
NATTVARDSGÄSTERNA
1962, Janus Films, 80 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman
“God, why did you desert me?” Master craftsman Ingmar Bergman explores the search for redemption in a meaningless existence in this stark depiction of spiritual crisis. Small-town pastor Tomas Ericsson (Gunnar Björnstrand) performs his duties mechanically before a dwindling congregation; when he is asked to assist with a troubled parishioner’s (Max von Sydow) debilitating fear of nuclear annihilation, Tomas is terrified to find that he can provide nothing but his own uncertainty. Beautifully photographed by Sven Nykvist, WINTER LIGHT is an unsettling look at the human craving for personal validation in a world seemingly abandoned by God.

All films with English subtitles. Format for all three films is DCP.
