In conjunction with our winter exhibition, The Experimental Self: Edvard Munch’s Photography (on view through April 7, 2018), Scandinavia House will be screening the original TV movie version of Peter Watkins’ seminal 1974 film, Edvard Munch.
The screening takes
place over two nights:
Part I on Tuesday, March 20
Part II on Tuesday, March 27

The film finds enduring significance in Munch’s brief affair with “Mrs. Heiberg” (Gro Fraas) and his participation in the café society of anarchist Hans Jæger (Kåre Stormark) in Christiania and later in Berlin with August Strindberg (Alf Kare Strindberg). Through it all Munch’s melancholy and his desire to render his innermost feelings on canvas, cardboard, paper, stone, and wood are evident.
