Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
Ingmar Bergman's Cries and Whispers is soaked in some of the most sumptuous red ever committed to celluloid. From the walls and carpets of the stately manor in which the film takes place to the dresses of the sisters that occupy it, red saturates the film's aesthetic. Bergman would tellingly note in his screenplay for the film: "ever since my childhood I have pictured the inside of the soul as a moist membrane in shades of red". It is fitting then that Cries and Whispers is a film of such high passion; it is predicated on love and loss, memory and death, familial bonds and collapsed relationships. It is an ensemble drama in which the visit of two women to their dying sister leads to the spill over of intense emotions.

Cries and Whispers will screen from an archival 35mm film print.
