This autumn 2018, the Swedish Institute (Institut suédois) pays tribute to one of the greatest directors in the history of cinema, Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007), as he would have been 100 this year.
Today, I took the guided tour of the homage exhibition, organized every Sunday, at 4pm, by the Swedish Institute; it was very interesting and helpful. During half an hour, our guide gave us many details about Ingmar Bergman's personal and public life. She told us about his famous house on the small island Fårö, where he shot six of his movies: Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Persona (1966), Hour of the Wolf (1968), Shame (1968), The Passion of Anna (1969), Scenes from a Marriage (1972). Bergman actually died there on July 30th, 2007, and every year, in June, the Bergmancenter organises an event in Fårö, to celebrate the work of the great director.
The exhibition shows the influence of Bergman on other arts, such as: fashion, design, photography. Two short films about Bergman are also shown.
My advice: after your visit, go and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at the coffee shop.
