The Phantom Carriage is a 1921 Swedish film generally considered to be one of the central works in the history of Swedish cinema. Released on New Year's Day 1921, it was directed by and starred Victor Sjöström, with Hilda Borgström, Tore Svennberg and Astrid Holm. It is based on the novel Thy Soul Shall Bear Witness!, by Nobel prize-winning Swedish author Selma Lagerlöf.
The film is notable for its special effects, its advanced (for the time) narrative structure with flashbacks within flashbacks, and for having been a major influence on the works of Ingmar Bergman.
The film will be masterfully accompanied on the Ironwood Theatre’s Barton organ by organist supremo Andrew Rogers from Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theatre with his original film score.
Not to be missed, and a great way to get into the spirit of Halloween
