Released the same year as The Seventh Seal, this film further cemented Bergman's reputation with its elaborate use of dreams to represent the emotional crisis of an aging professor traveling to another town to receive an award.

Victor Sjöström, who plays the lead role, was one of the foremost directors of silent Swedish cinema, 404.727.6123

Dearest Decatur Arts Alliance Blog Readers,

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I've been sick for the past week, unable to make it in to the office where my reliable Arts in Decatur March Calendar is saved on my computer. Needless to say, I'm back and am eager to blog. In fact, I'll have six new posts up before you can say "The Decatur Arts Alliance rocks!"
