THE SEVENTH SEAL (1957), included in the set, will also be released on UHD/Blu-ray on 1 November 2021

For more than 50 years, Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007) produced groundbreaking works of cinema that established him as one of the world's most acclaimed, enduring and influential filmmakers. Ingmar Bergman: Volume 2, released by the BFI on 29 October 2021, is the second of a four-volume celebration of the auteur’s work - available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

In the 1950s Bergman established himself at the vanguard of world cinema. Following his breakthrough success, Summer With Monika, he continued with a series of innovative productions, of which many are still considered among the greatest films ever made.
