Stunning cinematography and thought-provoking story in acclaimed new film
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the acclaimed new drama “Bergman Island” showing Oct. 15-21 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Bergman Island” features a stellar ensemble cast, including Tim Roth, Mia Wasikowska, Vicky Krieps and Anders Danielsen Lie.
A filmmaking couple living in America, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth), retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape where Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films.
As days spent separately pass by, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.
“Bergman Island” is a film about love for cinema, and Bergman particularly, and is also a double love story.
“‘Bergman Island’ — a triple-layered meta-romance about a filmmaker who flies to Sweden with her partner and pitches him a screenplay about her first love — is such a rare and remarkable movie.” – IndieWire
“Among other things, ‘Bergman Island’ is an ode to a female artist’s freedom to derive creative inspiration and sustenance where she chooses.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“A beautifully shot portrait of Bergman’s beloved island of Faro, the film is also a self-reflexive jeu d’esprit about gender, desire, creativity and the magic of cinema.” – Screen Daily
