Twilight Room of the Soul: Shame (Skammen)
Sat, Oct 27 / 3 pm
This newly restored film, which contains some of the greatest scenes in Bergman’s oeuvre, shows the devastating impact of war on defenseless individuals. Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann star as musicians living in quiet retreat on a remote island farm, where the civil war that drove them from the city soon catches up with them. Amid the chaos and confusion of the military struggle, vividly evoked by Sven Nykvist’s handheld camera work, the two are faced with uncomfortable moral choices.

Sat, Oct 27 / 5 pm
The strangest and most disturbing of the films Bergman shot on the island of Fårö, Hour of the Wolf, stars Max von Sydow as a haunted painter living in voluntary exile with his wife (Liv Ullmann). This gripping film is charged with a nightmarish power rare in the Bergman canon, and contains dreamlike effects that  brilliantly underscore the tale’s horrific elements.

The fifth drama that Bergman shot on his beloved Fårö describes a mood of fear and spiritual guilt.
