Upcoming Event

The Magic Lantern of Ingmar Bergman: Cries and Whispers

Feb 14 2019

Seattle Art Museum

Plestcheeff Auditorium

7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

SAM and the Nordic Museum continue our centennial celebration of Swedish writer-director Ingmar Bergman. Marshalling superb actors like Liv Ullmann, Max Von Sydow, Bibi Andersson and Ingrid Bergman, and the Oscar-winning cinematography of Sven Nykvist, Bergman explores deep existential questions, and the abiding mystery and beauty of life.

about the film

In a mansion in a park, two women (chilly Ingrid Thulin and earthy Liv Ullmann) are comforting their dying sister (Harriett Andersson), who’s anticipating her “new voyage.” Mysteries of eroticism, personal and family pain, and tension are in the air, but, as critic David Thomson says, “It evokes a sense of a time when three sisters were as one in a summer of joy.” In 35mm, 91 min.
