SATURDAY, AUGUST 25 11:30 AM; MONDAY, AUGUST 27 7 PM; THURSDAY, AUGUST 30 9 PM. “Inspired by the earthy eroticism of Harriet Andersson, Ingmar Bergman had a major international breakthrough with this sensual and ultimately ravaging tale of young love. A girl and boy run away from home to spend a secluded, romantic summer at the beach. Inevitably, it is not long before the pair are forced to return to reality. The version initially released in the U.S. was reedited by its distributor into something more salacious, but the original Summer with Monika, presented here, is a work of stunning maturity and one of Bergman’s most important films.” (Janus) 1953 Ingmar Bergman 1.33:1 B&W DCP 97 min.
