Searching for Ingmar Bergman

  • Dir: Margarethe von Trotta

  • Germany/France, 2018, 99minmins, DCP

On the occasion of Bergman’s centenary, Margarethe von Trotta explores the film legacy of the genius director who inspired her to become a filmmaker. Drawing insights from Liv Ullmann, his sons, and a new generation of filmmakers including Olivier Assayas, Ruben Östlund and Carlos Saura, von Trotta gives an intimate portrait of the auteur. The documentary also features archival footage from Bergman’s body of work, the exploration of recurring themes in his films, journeys to the places of his inspiration, and his decadelong exile in Germany. An invaluable opportunity to see the many layers of Bergman’s work and life.
