The Virgin Spring (Jungfrukällan)
Directed by Ingmar Bergman

Sunday, September 16, 3 pm

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. 1960, Sweden, DCP, in Swedish with English subtitles, 89 minutes. Recommended for 16+.

Part of Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema in the 1950s and 1960s: A Centennial Retrospective

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. In a career that spanned six decades, Bergman directed dozens of films in an astonishing array of tones, ranging from comedies whose lightness and complexity belie their brooding hearts, to groundbreaking formal experiments and excruciatingly intimate explorations of family relationships. This series focuses on his prolific period of filmmaking in the 1950s and 60s as his international renown grew.
