THROUGH A LENS DARKLY: THE FILMS OF INGMAR BERGMAN
FANNY AND ALEXANDER

Ingmar Bergman's classic FANNY AND ALEXANDER (celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year), is the tale of a brother and sister whose family life goes from joyous to harsh when their father dies and their mother remarries in early 20th century Sweden.

30th Anniversary!

FANNY AND ALEXANDER
FANNY OCH ALEXANDER
1982, Janus Films, 188 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

It’s Christmas at the mansion of the pleasure-loving Ekdahl family in 1907 - and Fanny (Pernilla Allwin) and Alexander (Bertil Guve) watch as their massive clan gathers for one of cinema’s greatest holiday celebrations, among its highlights their lovably rapscallion uncle Jarl Kulle. But after their theater-manager father dies and their actress mother (Ewa Froling) marries tombstone-faced Bishop Jan Malmsjo, the siblings’ world darkens radically to one of harsh family terrors. With sumptuous cinematography by Sven Nykvist. In Swedish with English subtitles.


Screening format: 35mm prints.
