Bergman Island

Saturday October 7
Saturday October 7
Director: Mia Hansen-Løve
2021 / 112min / DCP

“Krieps shines in Hansen-Løve’s wry and playful portrait of a woman, mother, and frustrated artist. Krieps stars opposite Tim Roth, the pair playing married filmmakers who travel for a writing retreat to the secluded Swedish island of Fårö—a place steeped in the legacy of director Ingmar Bergman. The solitude and historical resonance of the location prove to be both a wellspring of inspiration as well as a source of unsettling disruption for Krieps’s character Chris, who becomes captivated by her fictional creations (brought to life onscreen by Mia Wasikowska and Anders Danielsen Lie) and the boundaries that blur reality and fantasy. Seamlessly blending the intimate with the meta-cinematic, Bergman Island delightfully explores the interplay of love and the creative process, crafting a moving portrayal of an artist’s quest for her individual voice.”—Series curator Adeline Monzier

“Simply a wonderful thing to watch, full of humor, intelligence, and wit. A woman finds her way; a mother finds her voice; an artist finds her identity; and a lover finds her independence. Bergman as the image, and the island as the mirror.”—Vicky Krieps
