Bergman 100

July 6 – October 3

"Probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera." - Woody Allen

The Gene Siskel Film Center presents "Bergman 100," a centenary celebration of the Swedish director who for many filmgoers epitomized the cinema's potential as a serious art form.

The 26 films in the series cover the breadth of Ingmar Bergman's ca. 60-film career, including his early artistic breakthroughs (TO JOY, SUMMER INTERLUDE, SAWDUST AND TINSEL), his first great international successes (SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT, THE SEVENTH SEAL, WILD STRAWBERRIES), his celebrated trilogy (THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY, WINTER LIGHT, THE SILENCE), and his late-career triumphs (CRIES AND WHISPERS, SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, FANNY AND ALEXANDER).

Nearly all of the films are presented in new digital restorations prepared in a massive project by the Swedish Film Institute. SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE and FANNY AND ALEXANDER will be shown in the complete multi-episode TV versions that were greatly preferred by Bergman over the truncated U.S. theatrical release versions.

Although Bergman was sometimes pigeon-holed as a solemn artist, this series demonstrates the range and variety of his work, which encompasses the sophisticated sex comedy of SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT and THE DEVIL'S EYE, the medieval vigor of THE SEVENTH SEAL and THE VIRGIN SPRING, the moving personal epiphanies of WILD STRAWBERRIES and AUTUMN SONATA, and the burnished nostalgia of FANNY AND ALEXANDER.

Also represented here is Bergman's unsurpassed skill with actresses, incarnated in a succession of vibrant performances, from his early work with Maj-Britt Nilsson, Eva Dahlbeck, and Harriet Andersson, to his middle-period films with Bibi Andersson and Ingrid Thulin, to his later collaborations with Liv Ullmann.
