Through a Glass Darkly

SACC and the Swedish Consulate of Arizona celebrated Ingmar Bergman 100 year with a series of screenings in 2018. Phoenix Art Museum revisits this master cinematographer. 

While vacationing on a remote island, a family’s already fragile ties are tested when daughter Karin (Harriet Andersson) discovers that her father has been using her schizophrenia for his own literary means. 

As she drifts in and out of lucidity, the father (Gunnar Björnstrand), along with Karin’s husband (Max von Sydow) and her younger brother (Lars Passgård) are unable to prevent Karin’s harrowing descent into the abyss of mental illness. 

Winner of the 1962 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and featuring an astonishing lead performance by Andersson, "Through a Glass Darkly" presents an unflinching vision of a family’s near disintegration and a tortured psyche further taunted by God’s intangible presence.

Note: This film is the last of four films in a series inspired by the art exhibition Scandinavian Pain.

Free for Members of Phoenix Art Museum. $5 for non-Members.
