Directed by Ingmar Bergman

Sweden 1968 90 mins. In Swedish

Despite having toyed with aspects of psychological horror in prior films such as The Silence and Persona, Hour of the Wolf remains Bergman’s only exercise in true horror. Shot on Bergman’s beloved island of Fårö, the film concerns an artist (Max Von Sydow) who recounts a series of disturbing delusions, indistinguishable from reality. Liv Ullmann plays his pregnant wife who is powerless to help him as he slips further into madness. “A must for fans of horror and Bergman. So good it makes you wish he had dabbled in the genre a bit more often.”—Kim Newman, Empire. Best Director, National Society of Film Critics. In Swedish with English subtitles.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
