Ingmar Bergman Centennial
Summer with Monika

August 5 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

The sensual, young, and freethinking Monika escapes with her new lover to the Swedish Archipelago, where the two spend the summer in a fragile idyll that eventually ends in loss of innocence and painful resignation. A quintessential work of Bergman’s early career, Summer with Monika fixed the director’s focus on a female perspective and themes of escape and concession that would distinguish much of his later work. (1953, 35mm, subtitles, 96 minutes)
