Bard SummerScape film festival continues with our “Before Bergman”

The 2011 film festival continues with our “Before Bergman” segment with two films directed by Carl Dreyer and one directed by Victor Sjöström.

All films are $8 and take place at the Jim Ottaway Film Center. Thursday, July 28 at 7 pm: Michael 1924, directed by Carl Dreyer An early Dreyer masterpiece, this restrained, nuanced drama centers on an aging artist’s homosexual love for his young protégé. Silent, with English text. 90 minutes.

Sunday, July 31 at 4 pm: The Wind 1928, directed by Victor Sjöström Considered Sjöström’s best film from his brief Hollywood sojourn. Lillian Gish is unforgettable as a pioneer struggling alone in West Texas. Silent, with English text. 95 minutes. Sunday, July 31 at 7 pm: Master of the House 1925, directed by Carl Dreyer A rare Dreyer comedy, in which a domestric tyrant gets both his comeuppance and an education. Silent, with English text. 107 minutes.

Once again, Bard SummerScape is pleased to present all titles on 35mm film (whenever possible). All silent films have live piano accompaniment.
