Ingrid Bergman becomes more of an icon with every passing year, and writer, director and film critic Stig Björkman’s intimate portrait captures the magic and legend of her appeal. Tracing her life from Sweden to Hollywood and then Italy, a combination of never-before-seen family films, notes, letters, diaries, and interviews with Bergman’s children (Pia Lindström, Isabella and Ingrid Rossellini, and son Renato Rossellini) results in a documentary that is both celebratory and revelatory. In all, a captivating look behind-the-scenes of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most beloved and celebrated actresses of American and European cinema.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
