Description

Along with Victor Sjöström, Mauritz Stiller was a leading force behind the golden age of Swedish cinema. And his discovery of the young Greta Gustafsson gave the world the dazzling film star Greta Garbo! This is Garbo’s first starring role and she is radiant opposite the superb Lars Hanson as the defrocked minister.

Restoration by the Swedish Film Institute

Preceding the screening, the 2018 SFSFF Award will be presented to Jon Wengström and the Swedish Film Institute.

There will be a 30-minute intermission at approximately 8:45 pm.
