As we celebrate one of cinema’s greatest ever directors, Ingmar Bergman, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, this short film omnibus asks the question: how has his legacy affected Swedish filmmakers of today? Bergman Revisited is a compilation of six very different short films, spanning from Bergman-esque drama to animated critical satire. All inspired by the mind of Ingmar Bergman. 

The six directors featured in this compilation are: Tomas Alfredson, who got his international breakthrough with Let The Right One In (2008) and is best known for 2011’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; Lisa Aschan, a Berlin International Film Festival award-winning director; Pernilla August, an actress & director whose breakthrough role came in Ingmar Bergman’s 1982 feature film, Fanny and Alexander; Patrik Eklund is an Academy Award-nominated director most famous for his feature Flicker. Jane Magnusson is an award-winning Swedish director and journalist. Her documentary Trespassing Bergman was selected for the Venice International Film Festival in 2013; and Linus Tunström is a Cannes Film Festival award-winning director and scriptwriter who also has been the head of one of Sweden’s most prestigious theatres for ten years.
