Bergman Island

  Mia Hansen-Løve

  France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden     112 minutes

Synopsis

Participating in a writing residency on Sweden’s Fårö island, where legendary film director Ingmar Bergman made his home and filmed many of his enduring masterworks, two American filmmakers (Vicky Krieps and Tim Roth) are preparing separate film projects. Attempting to glean inspiration from the historic surroundings, the two spend their days separately as they steep themselves in all things Bergman. When the mysterious rhythms of the island start to awaken long-dormant memories, the lines between dream, reality, and fiction collide. Stunning landscapes and performances of subtle power pair perfectly in this playful, stirring ode to Bergman, Fårö, and the lingering memory of love lost from the masterful Cannes-winning director of The Father of My Children and Things to Come.
