    We Call it Skweee

    A film about music, people and Scandinavia by Iacopo Patierno and David Giese.

    We Call It Skweee follows the Swedish and Finnish pioneers from the Scandinavian’s hometowns to Barcelona, covers the Sonar show and sketches the history of an unusual Scandinavian music phenomenon.

    In early 2008, Italian filmmaker Iacopo Patierno arrived in Stockholm to assist Erik Gandini on his film Videocracy. While in Sweden he discovered the quirky Scandinavian electro style Skweee and befriended some of its practitioners. 

    Active in the Dubstep scene back home with the audiovisual project Biologic, Patierno became fascinated with the music as well as the determination and individuality of the artists involved. 

    Camera in hand, he decided to follow some of the central Skweee artists for a year, starting in the functionalist Stockholm suburbs, traversing the Baltic to Helsinki, and eventually tripping down to Barcelona's legendary Sonar festival, where eight Swedish and Finnish artists were invited to represent the scene.

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

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

      Fårö Document

      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. 

      Bergman had discovered the bleak, windswept island of Fårö while scouting locations for "Through a Glass Darkly" in 1960. 

      Nearly a decade later, and after shooting a number of arresting dramas there, the director set out to pay tribute to the inhabitants of Fårö. 

      In Fårö Document, shot on handheld 16 mm by the peerless Sven Nykvist, Bergman interviews a variety of locals, in the process laying bare the generational divide between young residents eager to leave the island and older folk more deeply rooted in bucolic tradition. 

      The film reveals Bergman to be a sensitive and masterly documentarian.

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

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

      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.
