The Hyderabad Film Club, as a tribute to the legendary Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman, is screening a Swedish film Cries And Whispers, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet, on 11th August.

Cries and Whispers stars Liv Ullman and Ingrid Thulin as sisters of dying cancer patient Harriet Andersson. Both sisters have already had brushes with death: Ullman has had an affair which prompted her husband's suicide, while Thulin has long wanted to do away with herself, at one point mutilating her own vagina out of self-hatred. As for Andersson, she has been in pain so long that she feels as though she's in the midst of death-in-life.

With her two sisters wrapped up in their own problems, Harriet turns to her housekeeper Kari Sylwan for comfort; Sylwan has herself suffered the death of a child, and has developed a philosophical attitude towards impending doom. One of the most influential moments of the film is when two of the sisters share the innermost thoughts that they'd kept from one another for so many years.

Ingmar Bergman is a Swedish film director widely regarded as one of the great masters of modern cinema. He inspired a generation of filmmakers with his often stark and melancholic works including the films Wild Strawberries, Scenes From A Marriage and Fanny And Alexander. He made about 60 films before retiring from filmmaking in 2003.

He won Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film in 1960, 1961 and 1983, and a collection of his work was added last month to the UNESCO store of history's greatest archives. Fanny and Alexander won four Oscars in 1983 alone, and in total Bergman's work included 54 films, 126 theater productions and 39 radio plays. He died on 30th July, 2007.

The screenings are open for members of HFC only. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
