Ingmar Bergman

A selection of penetrating masterworks from one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

The ultimate auteur, Ingmar Bergman wrote and directed profoundly personal projects notable for their honesty in tackling the ‘big questions’ of everyday existence. How do we live with ourselves and others? Is there an order behind our unjust universe? Can love, sex, compassion  and creative endeavour help, given death’s inevitability? Drawing on his own experiences and emotions, Bergman was a fearless, peerless explorer of human psychology. 

Delve into a selection of films from an extraordinary body of work, exhilarating in its dramatic precision, purity and power
