Twilight Room of the Soul: The Virgin Spring (Jungfrukällan)

Sat & Sun, Oct 13 & 14 / 3 pm
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
1960, Sweden, 89 min
Swedish with English subtitles

Winner of the Academy Award for best foreign-language film, Bergman’s The Virgin Spring is a harrowing tale of faith, revenge, and savagery in medieval Sweden. With grim austerity, the director tells the story of the rape and murder of the virgin Karin, and her father Töre’s ruthless pursuit of vengeance, set in motion after the killers visit the family’s farmhouse. Starring Max von Sydow, the film is both beautiful and cruel in its depiction of a world teetering between paganism and Christianity.


No name is more synonymous with the postwar explosion of international art-house cinema than Ingmar Bergman, a master storyteller who startled the world with his stark intensity and naked pursuit of the most profound metaphysical and spiritual questions. This year is the centenary of Ingmar Bergman, who has proven to be, from any perspective, one of the most important film directors of the last century. These eight films are his most challenging, thought provoking, stringent, emotional documents in a career which spanned 50 years. All of these films have recently been restored in new digital formats by Janus Films and are currently touring North America. Curated by Rory Runnells and Winnipeg Film Group Cinematheque. Special thanks to Rory Runnells and Susan Algie.

Twilight Room of The Soul: The Universe of Ingmar Bergman is generously sponsored by George Toles, Kate, Ron and Jennifer Robinson, and Jonathan Walter.

Generously sponsored by William F. White International and IATSE 856.

    

Reviews

The balance between the beauty and evil is handled with an undeniable grace. The performances are uniformly excellent...an infinitely commendable masterpiece.
