BFI Player, the BFI’s streaming platform, is a gateway to global film, offering a collection of arthouse and world cinema to subscribers, alongside its pay-per-view rental releases and free archive titles and silent movie shorts.
This month is all about Ingmar Bergman, with some of the iconic director’s early work.
Here’s what’s coming to BFI Player’s subscription service in August 2021:
Port of Call – 9th August
Arguably the most acclaimed of Bergman’s early films, this charts the unsteady relationship between a girl bruised by her parents’ unhappy marriage and a sailor tired of years at sea.
Crisis – 9th August
Ingmar Bergman’s intriguing directorial debut, in which a young woman is torn between the traditional rural life of her family and the bright lights of the big city.
To Joy (1949) – 9th August
Victor Sjöström (the great director later cast in Wild Strawberries) plays a conductor overseeing the tempestuous relationship between two violinists under his tutelage, in this early romance from Ingmar Bergman.
A BFI Player subscription costs £4.99 a month, with a 14-day free trial.
