WILD STRAWBERRIES [SWEDEN 1957] VICTOR SEASTROM AND BIBI ANDERSSON

Science on Screen: Wild Strawberries with Geoff West

The fourth Science on Screen of the second series was presented by Geoff West (Distinguished Professor and past President of the Santa Fe Institute), who chose Ingmar Bergman’s Wild Strawberries. Describing life as a process of growing and dying, Geoff surveyed the scaling laws of biology that he himself worked on, and touched on his own experience of growing old. Similarly nostalgic, Professor Isak Borg of Wild Strawberries revisits scenes from his life while driving to Lund University to receive an award. Nightmares, daydreams and chance encounters afford him opportunities to come to terms with past regrets.
