The distinctive unforgettable works of filmmaker Rolf Forsberg, whose spiritually-based film parables and allegorical shorts have influenced generations, have long been out of circulation. Now, a quartet of the writer/director’s most powerful cinematic creations have been digitally remastered to HD, each with an insightful introduction by the director himself.
In 2015 a group of longtime classic film industry associates, friends and admirers of filmmaker Rolf Forsberg joined forces to honor him by respectfully restoring, reissuing and forever preserving his distinguished film legacy. In Feb 2017 production was at last completed on the first volume in the Rolf Forsberg Legacy Collection. Vol 1 showcases the fully restored widescreen version of Forsberg's landmark Parable (1964). Included also is The Antkeeper (1966), Ark (1970) and One Friday (1973).
In Dec. 2012, Parable was added to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. In June 2013, UCLA paid tribute to Rolf and his film legacy with a special screening of these four films at the Billy Wilder Theater in L.A. The program was called "The Outre World of Rolf Forsberg. Rolf attended as the Guest of Honor.
