Screening: Trespassing Bergman

“If cinema was a religion, this would be Mecca, the Vatican.

This is the center of it all.” So said acclaimed director Alejandro González Iñárritu when entering the Berg-man compound on the remote island of Fårö, on a cold November night in 2011.

Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman built his house in the mid 1960’s, choosing to withdraw from Stockholm, to an island in the Baltic Sea. Throughout his life, the exact location of the house was a well-guarded secret. Here the demon director would live and shoot some of his seminal films until his death in 2007.

“Trespassing Bergman” takes you to Berg-man’s mystical home in the company of great directors such as Michael Haneke, Claire Denis and the aforementioned Iñárritu. “Trespassing Bergman” tells the story of Ingmar Bergman, his island and some of his most central films.

Previously unseen, behind-the-scenes, footage from the making of Bergman’s films are mixed with interviews shot at Fårö and around the world. Filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Lars von Trier, Holly Hunter, Ang Lee and Wes Anderson talk about the impact that films ranging from “Summer with Monika” (1953),“Persona” (1966) to “Fanny and Alexander” (1982) have had on their lives and carriers.

“Trespassing Bergman” is about exploring Bergman’s home, his life, his films and his legacy
