Bergman 100: A Century of Cinema
On the occasion of the celebration of one hundred years after the great Swedish director’s birth, the 24th AIFF participates in the events of the global cinema community paying a modest homage to a colossal work that is worth being remembered forever.
The audience will have the opportunity to explore a marvelous installation dedicated to unpublicized material from Bergman’s career, that is presented in Greece for the first time, Jane Magnusson’s much-debated documentary about the unseen aspects of a film career and a whole life, as well as the digitally remastered copy of «Shame»: one of the iconic director’s most important films, which is going to be presented in an anniversary screening, 50 years after its release.
