Film Details

Film Classics in 35mm! Special Guests & Post-film Discussion!


Sweden | 1974 | Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman’s colorful, magical film version of Mozart’s fantasy opera is one of the director’s most beguiling and delightful films. Recounting the rescue of a princess kidnapped by a sorcerer, it’s a tale of love, light, and life triumphing over the forces of darkness, despair, and death. If you think Ingmar Bergman is all torment and suffering, think again. With Håkan Hagegård. Swedish with subtitles. 134 min.

This film complements the Kent State University Museum exhibition “Magical Designs for Mozart’s Magic Flute,” on view in Kent from 9/29 thru 1/8. The screening will be followed by a talk back with KSU Museum Director Jean Druesedow and theatrical costume designer and show curator Judy Levin. Special admission $11; Cinematheque & KSU Museum members, CIA/CSU/KSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
