The previously unpublished and unused script of the famous Swedish film classic Ingmar Bergman will soon be embodied on the screen, reports IndieWire . The compatriot of the great director Suzanne Osten took on the project.|
The author of such masterpieces as "Persona", "The Seventh Seal" and "Strawberry Glade" planned a script written in 1969 called " 64 minutes with Rebecca " for a joint project with similar giants, such like Akira Kurosawa and Federico Fellini. Unfortunately, then the work on the film almost did not budge, and its text disappeared in the archives of Bergman and was discovered by representatives of his Foundation only in the 2000s.
64 Minutes , Rebecca , a pregnant teacher with emotional problems, experiences sexual and political liberation amid the protest movements of 1968.
“ Bergman borrowed the tone of the narrative from the representatives of the New Wave and Michelangelo Antonioni, but at the same time retained his unique style. The main themes of the script are the liberation of women, the perception of homosexuality and a radical attitude towards power. This is an extremely daring, holistic scenario that challenges modern society, "says Austen .
First, 64 minutes will be presented as an audio performance on Swedish national radio, after which Austen will kick off the production process for the film, planning its release in 2018, a century since the birth of Ingmar Bergman.
