Screened November 2–15, 2018

One of the key figures to emerge from the New German Cinema movement of the 1970s, Margarethe von Trotta was first inspired to become a filmmaker after seeing Ingmar Bergman’s landmark The Seventh Seal. As a tribute to the Swedish legend on the occasion of his centennial, she’s made this sensitive, generous documentary exploration, interviewing collaborators like Liv Ullmann and admirers like Olivier Assayas. It’s a rich, insider’s look at what makes Bergman’s films so resonant, and reveals much of von Trotta herself in the process. An Oscilloscope Laboratories release
