Winter Light, the second film in Bergman’s Silence of God trilogy, focuses on man’s relationship with God and religion, as it speaks of a “penetrated certainty”. The film revolves around a priest, who is in an existential crisis, and his interactions with those who seek out his help and those who want to help him, portraying the cold and snowy days of rural Sweden through a subdued and poetic cinematography. Ripe with 1960s nuclear paranoia, Winter Light also contains autobiographical traces.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
