Science of Cinema: Kogonada’s Mirrors of Bergman

 

 

 

The genius Kogonada blesses the world with his most recent release. The video essay on Ingmar Bergman titled Mirrors of Bergman. We love Bergman. His films have

always focused on strong characters undergoing what could be described as an existential metamorphoses. The strength in the perceived thoughts and emotions of

Bergman’s characters plays a large part in his cinematic tone which has inspired countless filmmakers, musicians, designers etc. Kogonada focuses on a key element

in the world of Bergman, and perhaps the world of perception. The metaphysical rest stop, or information center known as the mirror. They say you can tell a lot about

a person from the eyes. Stare at your own eyes.
