UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “Ingmar Bergman on Television”
Fanny and Alexander (1982)
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
Warmed through with sentiment and turn-of-the-century, candlelit interiors, director Ingmar Bergman’s most autobiographical work unfolds through the perspective of 10-year-old Alexander, whose wealthy family, the Ekdahls, runs a theater in their small Swedish town. Sweeping through seasons and across holidays, marriages, reunions and deaths, Bergman glides between harsh reality and a curious magic and imagination. This four-time Academy Award–winning triumph of intimacy and childlike wonder represents Bergman’s final directorial effort, though he would continue to write for television until just before his death, at age 89.
