Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman opens his soul to filmmaker Marie Nyreröd for a three-part documentary produced for Swedish television and offering the most intimate portrait of the director since Vilgot Sjöman's 1963 film Ingmar Bergman Makes a Movie (a documentary which followed the making of Bergman's acclaimed 1962 chamber drama Winter Light). A longtime friend to her celebrated subject, Nyreröd teams with editor Kurt Bergmark to offer a three-sided meditation on Bergman that begins by examining his film career before moving on to his theatrical accomplishments and personal struggles. From his remarkable accomplishments as the artistic director for the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm to his collaboration with faithful producer Lorens Marmstedt, every aspect of Bergman's enduring and prolific career are discussed before the pair head back to the director's Faro home for an intimate and relaxed interview.
