Bergman: A Year In The Life

Jane Magnusson directs and narrates a documentary that exposes the darker, less well-known side to one of the most famous directors in world cinema. Focussing on 1957, a landmark year in which Bergman directed two films, four plays and was on the cusp of six-year purple patch that would redefine world cinema; Magnusson explores not only the director’s filmography but his complex and turbulent personal life using a wealth of previously unseen archive material, contemporary interviews and a fantastic selection of clips from Ingmar Berman’s vast body of work, this fascinating and unflinching study is one of the standout film documentaries of the year.
