MUBI, the theatrical distributor and global curated film streaming service, has released a new trailer and two brand new posters for Mia Hansen-Love’s critically acclaimed English-language debut Bergman Island, which will be released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 3 June 2022, followed by an exclusive streaming release on MUBI on 22 July 2022.
From acclaimed filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (Eden, Things to Come), Bergman Island is a dazzling and bittersweet romantic drama set on the breathtaking island of Fårö, where revered filmmaker Ingmar Bergman lived and worked for over forty years.
Chris and Tony are filmmakers, hoping to find inspiration for their next films as they retreat to the Swedish island to work on their screenplays. Meanwhile Amy and Joseph, who were once lovers, are staying on Fårö to celebrate the wedding of their friend. As the summer passes by, the lines between reality and fiction become increasingly blurred as reminders of Bergman’s legacy playfully influence both stories. Laced with characteristically semi-autobiographical elements, Hansen-Løve’s latest is a mischievous and elegant contemplation of love, memory and the journey of the creative process.
Featuring an outstanding cast including Academy-Award® nominee Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight, Rob Roy), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Mia Wasikowska (The Devil All The Time, Stoker) and Anders Danielsen Lie (The Worst Person In The World), Bergman Island premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival where it was nominated for the Palme d’Or, before having its North American Premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival and its UK Premiere at the 2021 BFI London Film Festival, where it received widespread acclaim.
