Filmfest 2018

German Age Rating

In 2013, director Jane Magnusson brought together several filmmakers, among them Woody Allen and Francis Ford Coppola, to discuss Ingmar Bergman's legacy. Her latest film, created to mark the occasion of Bergman's 100th birthday, is devoted to his most productive phase, which began in 1957. During this time, Bergman worked on WILD STRAWBERRIES, on THE SEVENTH SEAL, and later on THE SILENCE, while also directing for the stage — and not least, managing his numerous affairs and children. This is a film about creativity and obsession as well as about what great artists demand of themselves and those around them.
