SEARCHING FOR INGMAR BERGMAN

Dir: Margarethe Von Trotta
Germany / France / 2018 / 99mins

The Seventh Seal was the first film that director Margarethe Von Trotta saw and sparked her fascination in Ingmar Bergman.

Bergman also was an admirer of Von Trotta’s work – he included her 1981 film Marianne and Juliane as one of a top 11 list of films that were important to him.

As Von Trotta revisits iconic locations and scenes of his films she builds a rich tapestry of Bergman’s legacy.

Through conversations with actors, filmmakers and relatives, she also creates a portrait of the difficult man who fathered 9 children with 6 women.

Bubbling with anecdotes and insight into the breadth of his influence, this is a film for both fans and newcomers to Bergman’s work.
