Last August marked the hundredth birthday of the Swedish Film Superstar Ingrid Bergman (1915 – 1982). She was a pioneer in film industry who made her mark in Swedish, German, Italian and American cinema, winning three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, a BAFTA Award, and the Tony Award for Best Actress.
As part of its programme entitled “Cinema El Bahr,” the Swedish Institute Alexandria (SwedAlex) is celebrating Bergman’s memory with a series of film screenings this month in collaboration with Zawya Alexandria, Embassy of Sweden in Cairo and Instituto Italiano Di Cultura in Cairo.
Starting on Saturday the 13th of February, Zawya Alexandria will host the screening of “A Woman’s Face” (1938) in Cinema Amir, and then SwedAlex will host two screenings of Italian films directed by Roberto Rossellini; “Stromboli” on Monday the 15th and “Journey to Italy” on Thursday the 18th. The last event in the Bergman tribute will be a screening of “Intermezzo” (1939) in Zawya Alexandria on Saturday the 20th of February. All these film screenings are open for public attendance. The screenings start at 6:00 pm, entry is free. Other screenings will be held in Cairo later in February.
Due to limited seating, priority is for those who arrive early until the hall is fully booked.
