The Films of Arne Sucksdorff. Imported Digital Restoration!
DET STORA ─VENTYRET
Sweden | 1953 | Arne Sucksdorff
Perhaps the most celebrated work by the great Swedish nature filmmaker Arne Sucksdorff (who was born 100 years ago), this poetic, painstakingly photographed feature follows two Swedish farm boys who coexist with foxes, lynx, and other wild animals—and secretly domesticate an otter—over the course of four seasons. We will show a DCP from Sweden, affording moviegoers a rare chance to see this multi-award-winning classic with English subtitles instead of English narration. 77 min. Preceded at showtime by Sucksdorff’s Oscar-winning Symphony of a City (aka Rhythm of a City/Människor i stad, 1947, DCP, 20 min.), an impressionistic portrait of Stockholm.
