Abstract:This essay was written as a provocation and contribution to the Writing Space project, University of Winchester, 2008. It was presented as a performance text with the opening 20 minutes of Winter Light playing without sound in the background. It is a fusion of memoir, film criticism, aesthetic theorization and critical re-evaluation. The author examines his own film-going history and the centrality of Bergman's work to that; posits Bergman's films of the 1960s as the key theatre texts of their time; analyses the components of Bergman's cinematic project at that time; reflects upon a notion of rigour derived from that work; settles on Winter Light as the exemplary film and ponders its meaning and genesis.
