TASS, citing the Dagens Nyheter newspaper, reports that Sweden is planning to shoot a film based on a previously unknown script by Ingmar Bergman "64 minutes with Rebecca." This is a story about the life of a pregnant teacher, set in the 60s: Rebecca joins a radical party and explores her relationship to sexual and political freedom.
The script was written by Bergman in 1969 for a joint project with Akira Kurosawa and Federico Fellini, but plans for cooperation never materialized, and the work lay in the archive until 2000.
The screenplay of the script of the legendary director will be taken up by the Swede Susanne Osten: it is known that first a radio play will be staged, and then filming will begin, which Austen wants to finish by the centenary of Bergman's birth in 2018.
“This is the only 64 minutes that Bergman is completely feminist. There have always been strong women in his films, but in this play he takes it one step further. He is in the atmosphere of the 60s, when a huge wave of change swept through Sweden, and he caught it in an amazing way,”said Austen. -According to the plot, a woman discovers her own sexuality, everything is about knowing oneself. This is not a "cute movie", everything is different there than in romantic films about love."
