MEMORY ON FILM: WILD STRAWBERRIES

Director: Ingmar Bergman

91 mins, Sweden, 1957, Digital, Subtitled, Back and White


This film screened on Sunday 12th May 2019.

Professor Isak Borg (veteran actor/director Victor Sjöström) travels from Stockholm to Lund to accept an honorary degree. On the journey he is haunted by powerful memories of his youth, and ominous and disquieting visions, which compel the professor to re-evaluate his life, his relationships, and make peace with the inevitability of his impending death. Wild Strawberries, which Bergman wrote from a hospital bed during a period of heightened creative productivity, is filled with the director’s customary blend of visual poetry and stark psychological insight; a poignant, elegiac masterpiece, the film is, despite its subject, one of Bergman’s most humane and accessible works.

Screening as part of our Memory on Film season, May 11th to 29th 2019.
