Mauritz Stiller

Mauritz Stiller (1883-1928) is, alongside Victor Sjöström, one of the biggest names in Swedish silent cinema. During 1912-16 he directed 34 films in different genres, including The Wings (1916). The characteristic trait in Swedish silent films at the time, the interaction between Man and Nature, was taken to new heights by Stiller in Song of the Scarlet Flower (1919) and Johan (1921). Following Erotikon (1920) and The Saga of Gösta Berling (1924), he and the film’s star Greta Garbo left for Hollywood, where Hotel Imperial (1928) was the only film over which he maintained full artistic control.
