A FAX FROM INGMAR
[This piece is really more like tabloid gossip than anything else. But nonetheless it is interesting to read what the Grand Old Man gets up to on his remote little island.]
For many years, Ingmar Bergman has been residing on the remote Swedish island of Fårö. The small island is sparsely populated with year-round residents and Bergman is one of them. He has his own cinema which he uses for private screenings, due mostly to the fact that he rarely travels and is far from any city. He still keeps up with new and interesting films.
Out of pure respect Swedish distributors and cinema chains occassionally send him reels to watch, to feed his cinematic appetite.
One independent film distributor specialising in arthouse films recieves faxes and emails from around the country about orders, screenings, etc. Once in awhile there is a fax from Fårö.
In the late spring of 2002 one such fax arrived.
The fax simply read: "These are the movies Ingmar wishes to see this summer." Followed by this list:
Hus i helvete/All Hell Let Loose (Susan Taslimi, Sweden 2002)
