Stig Björkman in Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words

Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words

2015 NR

Whether headlining films in Sweden, Italy, or Hollywood, Ingrid Bergman always pierced the screen with a singular soulfulness. With this new documentary, made on the occasion of the one hundredth anniversary of Bergman's birth, director Stig Björkman allows us unprecedented access to her world, culling from the most personal of archival materials: letters, diary entries, photographs, and Super 8 and 16 mm footage Bergman herself shot and following her from youth to tumultuous married life and motherhood.
