This summer's series is a tribute to Janus Films, the legendary distributor of foreign films (and sister company to the Criterion Collection. The company was established at the beginning of the golden age for art house cinema in the U.S. and was instrumental in introducing American audiences to such directors as Ingmar Bergman, François Truffaut, and Akira Kurosawa. Each film will be screened in a new 35mm print provided by Janus Films.

The Wexner Center marks the recent passing of one of the cinema’s true giants with a film from the latter half of his career.

A stunning union of two of Sweden’s national treasures, Autumn Sonata pairs Ingmar Bergman with Ingrid Bergman for their only joint effort. Ingrid plays a mother who, after forsaking her family for a music career, attempts a reconciliation with her oldest daughter (Liv Ullmann) through a night of painful revelation. Sven Nykvist contributes glorious Eastmancolor cinematography to this quietly beautiful story of forgiveness. (35mm, 92 mins.)

Please note: Turn your evening into a double feature! Purchase tickets to The Earrings of Madame de… at 7 PM and get into this screening for free.
