Tuesday 2/13, at 7:00 PM in Art Building West Auditorium
: The Experimental Wing
and the Maia Quartet
will present a screening of Ingmar Bergman's Winter Light,
with University of Iowa voice faculty singing Lutheran hymns prior to the film. This is the second of four films in the Scandinavian/Nordic Fest's Ingmar Bergman Film Festival
, to be shown each Tuesday in February. Follow up to Through A Glass Darkly
, Winter Light
is an even starker
expression of the existential struggles Bergman was going through when
he wrote and directed the 'Trilogy.'
Capturing the lives of a small community during the waking hours of a
single day, Winter Light is a stunning, mesmerizing film that
features brilliant acting performances, and a legendary six-minute
segment that rivals in audacity any of the experiments New Wave
filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard and others were engaged in at the time.
Note that each film in the 'Trilogy' also stands alone fully.
