Video: The Mirrors of Ingmar Bergman, narrated with the poetry of Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath was a fan of Ingmar Bergman’s work. She was inspired by the mood and imagery of the films, and she based her poem “Three Women” on Bergman’s film So Close to Life.

Here, the video-artist Kogonada creates a powerful visual poem by bringing together cuts from Bergman’s films with passages from Plath’s poetry.
