Dear Tomas reworks a sequence from Ingmar Bergman’s 1963 film Winter Light. Through a series of inversions, the unfolding scene of a priest opening and reading a letter is complicated by the inclusion of collaged elements that sometimes obscure and sometimes reveal the facial features of the protagonists. While the voices are in their original Swedish, the subtitles describe the story of a woman writing to a boy, describing how she defended her sister against his assault and received the beating in her sister’s stead.
