The Virgin Spring (1960) NR

Based on a 13th century Swedish ballad, The Virgin Spring is a dark, powerful experience from cinematic legend Ingmar Bergman.

This is our first Bergman film to be in the program, so we are excited to share the work of this film master, starting with this haunting, unforgettable picture. The movie is not rated, but deals with sensitive and mature subject matter including rape and murder.
