Ingmar Bergman Through Choreographer's Eye

Fredrik Stattin
Sweden 2016 / 51’
Saraband Bergman: A Year in Life

Although Ingmar Bergman is no longer alive, his films continue to lead the most vital existence and inspire new artists, especially those whose ambition is to deal with the complexity of human nature. The beneficiaries of Bergman's oeuvre are not just filmmakers. Ingmar Bergman Through the Choreographer's Eye is an attempt to translate the Swedish directors work into the language of dance - to find rhythm in the gestures and mimicry of silver screen characters, to contrive choreographed equivalents for the emotions and ideas borne by particular stories. The performances shown in the film include exploration of various states of mind in solitude as well as those about the dynamics of interpersonal relations written for two dancers.
