SWF POP #24: Bergman Island: Writing Stories of One's Lives

  • The Arts House 1 Old Parliament Lane Singapore, 179429 Singapore (map)

Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman is lauded as a brilliant purveyor of the human condition, traversing such wide-ranging issues as family, marriage, mortality and the role of the artist in his films, essays and fiction pieces. So, how much of an artist and his or her life is reflected in their works? How does one’s choice of storytelling technique influence the subject matter and vice versa?

Don’t miss the first-ever Singapore screening of Bergman Island, featuring a series of interviews with Bergman himself, and a post-screening dialogue between Swedish documentarian, Marie Nyreröd, and Singaporean fiction writer, Clara Chow, on the craft and process of a storyteller on film and on paper. This session will be moderated by Genevieve Loh.

This SWF POP is co-presented with the Embassy of Sweden. The Bergman Retrospective at the Swedish Film Festival will take place from 12 – 15 April at The Projector.
