Cannes Film Festival celebrates Bergman
During the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, which takes place between 8-19 May, a newly restored The Seventh Seal will be screened, along with two new documentaries about Ingmar Bergman.
A newly restored version of The Seventh Seal will be screened in the Cannes Classics section. When it was released, The Seventh Seal was awarded the Jury’s Special Prize at Cannes and is one of the most quoted and plagiarised films of all time.
In the same section Jane Magnusson's upcoming film Bergman - A Year in a Life will be screened for the first time.
Director Margarethe von Trotta's new documentary Searching for Ingmar Bergman will also premiere at Cannes. Von Trotta was highly appreciated by Ingmar Bergman, and her film follows in the filmmaker’s footsteps, questioning the new generation about the place left by the Swedish master.
