A long unknown film script written by Ingmar Bergman
This script was written for an “omnibus film” (a very fashionable genre in the 1960s), of which Fellini and Kurosawa should have directed the other two episodes. The Italian and the Japanese having in turn withdrawn from the project, Bergman's script was never filmed and the filmmaker archived it among his working documents.
A beautiful, pregnant young woman, Rebecka, is a teacher of hearing-impaired children. Bored with her existence, she yearns for sexual and social liberation. The script is a take on the political and sexual turmoil of the late 1960s. It is a fascinating script with great potential
