Ingmar Bergman - Seventh Seal
Bengt Ekerot & Bergman Filming ‘The Seventh Seal’ (1957)

“To me, when cinematography is at its best, it is very close to the state of dreaming. You know, in any other art you can’t create a situation that is as close to dreaming. Think only of the time gap. You can make things as long as you want, exactly as in a dream. You can make things as short as you want, exactly as in a dream. As a director, a creator of the picture, you are like a dreamer. You can make what you want. You can construct everything. I think that is one of the most fascinating things that exists.” –Ingmar Bergman
