In 1944, a young screenwriter made his debut with a controversial film about passion and murder. Hets (Torment), which went on to win the Cannes film Festival Grand Prix in 1946, was made at the Filmstaden film studios in Råsunda, Solna and the screenwriter was Ingmar Bergman. Over the next 25 years, Bergman would shoot 24 more films at Filmstaden, including classics such as Sommaren Med Monika (Summer With Monika), Smultronstället (Wild Strawberries) and Det Sjunde Inseglet (The Seventh Seal), making the site one of the most significant in the history of world cinema. Now, in the centenary of Bergman’s birth, Filmstaden is hosting an exhibition and a series of tours and film screenings to celebrate its links with the three-times Oscar winner.
