    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.

    SACC Arizona and SWEA Professional invites you to an informal Happy Hour Speaker event to make new contacts and gain new insights.

    This September we welcome Bernd Häber, who will stretch our minds and dive deep into Pluralistic Ignorance and how to overcome Bystander Apathy.

    "As individuals, we sometimes struggle with getting involved (or at least raise our voice) in social developments that contradict our core principles and beliefs … or we hesitate to mediate in situations affecting our personal environment.

    Pluralistic Ignorance is a stage “in which each person decides that since nobody is concerned, nothing is wrong. Meanwhile, the danger may be mounting to the point where a single individual, uninfluenced by the calm of others, would react.”

    Our speaker will share his story when a few years ago he decided to actively interfere in the social debate in the United States. His presentation connects current events, in the context of German history spanning from the 1930s – 2000s, with tactical and strategic aspects of how governmental decisions can impact our personal lives.

    Bernd also wants to inspire us to overcome Bystander Apathy, discussing very specific examples that triggers actions. Furthermore, he offers an approach of getting personally involved in debates around society and of finding strategic partners when seeking to change a social ‘status quo’.

    Bernd Häber is an Executive Team Member of the German American Chamber of Commerce (Arizona Chapter) and a member of the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce (Arizona Chapter). He works for Accenture, and is the founder of Worldstrings Promotion.

    Bernd grew up in East-Germany behind the Iron Curtain before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989.
