The year 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Ingmar Bergman: world-famous filmmaker, legendary theatre director and exceptional writer. The retrospective marks this occasion and will held in three parts. Part 1, which will be shown during February and March, is dedicated to Bergman’s early works; Part 2 (June-August) is dedicated to films from the 1950s-1960s, Part 3 (October-December) will showcase Bergman's late works.
In 1950, the Swedish film industry was in crisis and sought to produce a spy thriller. The young Ingmar Bergman was chosen to direct the project, but he felt the film was not what he expected - his plot dealt with Soviet infiltration attempts against dissidents who had fled to Sweden. Since then the film has not been allowed for screenings, until today.
