ASI's 2016 Winter Film Series Highlights Swedish Women Directors

The ASI 2016 Winter Film Series highlights the work of three Swedish women film directors. All screenings are free.


Wednesday, Jan. 13 — 7 p.m.

When the world looks at Sebastian Silverberg, it sees a young man who has it all. When Sebastian looks at the world, he sees an abundance of partying, popularity and sex. Just around the corner, his dream of becoming a successful recording artist is about to come true. Without realizing it, he finds true love for the first time, and when his sight is miraculously restored, he must be brave enough to see past the superficial and deliver a performance that comes straight from the heart.Ego is a romantic comedy/drama about vanity, love, sex and that things aren’t always what they appear to be.  Swedish with English subtitles. 105 min. Director: Lisa James Larsson


Wednesday, Feb. 10 — 7 p.m.

Erika has it all: a good job, lots of friends and a secure relationship. Until the day it all falls apart. Suddenly this perfect life means nothing, and the feelings she was once able to control are no longer within reach.  She starts going to group therapy and meets other people with different kinds of traumas. One day a question is raised within the group: Why shouldn’t we be allowed to feel good? The group decides to head for a place of complete anonymity, a place where you can reboot you persona and become whoever you want to be – they start checking into hotels.  Swedish with English subtitles. 97 min. Director: Lisa Langseth

Trespassing Bergman   

Wednesday, Mar. 9 — 7 p.m.

Ingmar Bergman’s home on Fårö Island occupies something of a mythical status among filmmakers. Some call it Mecca, others dread the long, narrow house near the Persona beach. In Trespassing Bergman some of the world’s leading directors and actors, several on site at Hammars, talk about their relationship with the demon director and his films. 107 min. Directors: Jane Magnusson &  Hynek Pallas. 


All screenings are free.

Seating is limited and advance registration is recommended.
