It is generally agreed among those who follow these things that Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman was something of an existential genius. Using the established vocabulary of a true visual stylist, he confronted some of our most primal fears and assumptions. About belonging. About believing. And finding a way to regard the material world in a way that made sense for a generation for whom sense no longer made sense. He was an artist who constantly challenged our assumptions about what it means to live in a free society. How we participate. How we observe. How we change and make the most of the time we’re given.
