In celebration of the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Sweden, the National Film Archive of Japan and the Swedish Film Institute co-organize a grand retrospective of Swedish films.
Swedish film has lots to offer. This retrospective presents 30 Swedish films (twenty-four programs) from 1934 to 1982, including works of Ingmar Bergman and Ingrid Bergman, popular comedies and melodramas, historically and culturally important films, and the films of Bo Widerberg and Jan Troell, both of whom reinvented the Swedish cinema in the 1960s.
We believe that this is one of the most comprehensive retrospectives of Swedish films in terms of variety of ages, directors, and genres, and it’s a great opportunity to trace the Swedish film history. Furthermore, in addition to the films made by Swedish filmmakers, we will also show a Japanese news-reel featuring Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf’s visit to Japan (1926), another testimony of the close relationship between Sweden and Japan. Don’t miss this opportunity.
