Synopsis by Nathan Southern

European theater owes a tremendous debt to Norway's own Henrik Ibsen, author of such theatrical staples as Hedda Gabler and The Wild Duck, and regarded by countless literary critics as one of the most brilliant playwrights to follow the Bard himself. This brief documentary (one in a series of nonfiction films about legendary authors) provides an overview of Ibsen's life and accomplishments, supplemented by the use of onscreen archival materials.
