SEMINAR: Ingmar Bergman: Art Cinema between Desolation and Ecstasy

General Admission: $25 | Belcourt Members: $20 | Click here to BUY TICKETS 

Led by Lutz Koepnick, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of German, Cinema and Media Arts at Vanderbilt University

In conjunction with the Belcourt’s series Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema: A Centennial Retrospective, we offer a closer look into the work of one of the great directors of international art cinema. Never afraid to explore the most essential questions about the human condition, Bergman’s cinema also followed a unique aesthetic vision, an at once vibrant and austere style that has come to influence generations of filmmakers. Bergman’s films defined cinema as a place to think with uncompromising gravity about both the mysteries of life and the nature of film itself. This seminar explores a number of central themes of Bergman’s work such as faith, death, identity, and art. It also illuminates some of the most memorable aesthetic signatures of Bergman’s film art: his choreography of light and shadow, the role of voice-over narration, his use of similar actors across various films, and the poetic function of natural settings.

(Seminar ticket and movie tickets sold separately.)
