Join our specialists in exploring the complex relationships of Bergman’s transgressive ‘family cinema’.

Image from Bergman Family Values: A Cinema of Disturbed Attachment

Total runtime 90min

Bergman’s cinema presents a rich tapestry of relationships, between parents and children, siblings, in-laws, friends and lovers and bonds that are somehow unnameable. How do these films reveal the myriad ways humans ‘attach’ to one another, through mechanisms of love, perversion, normativity, vampirism and contempt? Chair Gaylene Gould (Head of Cinemas, BFI), will be joined by Juliet Mitchell (Emeritus Professor of Psychoanalysis and Gender Studies, University of Cambridge), Andrew Asibong (Reader in Film and Cultural Studies, Birkbeck, University of London), and Amber Jacobs (Senior Lecturer in Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck, University of London) for an illuminating exploration of Bergman’s transgressive ‘family cinema’ and its emotional implications.

Presented in association with Birkbeck Research in Aesthetics of Kinship and Community.
