Directed by Stig Björkman

Sweden 2015 114 mins.

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.
