As we celebrate Ingmar Bergman, one of the greatest directors of all time, we asked how his legacy has affected Swedish filmmakers of today. BERGMAN REVISITED is a compilation of six very different short films, spanning from Bergmanesque drama to animated critical satire, all in all, inspired by the mind of Ingmar Bergman:
Scenes From the Night directed by Pernilla August,
Ariel by Linus Tunström,
Vox Lipoma by Jane Magnusson and Liv Strömquist,
God’s Silence by Lisa Aschan,
The Infection by Patrik Eklund, Bergman’s Reliquarium by Tomas Alfredson.
