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.

Focusing on 1957, a landmark year in which Bergman directed two films and four plays, Magnusson explores not only the director’s filmography but also his at times complex and turbulent personal life.

Using a wealth of previously unseen archive material, contemporary interviews and a fantastic selection of clips from Ingmar Bergman’s vast body of work, this fascinating and unflinching study is one of the standout film documentaries of the year.

“One of the most honest and overflowing portraits of a film artist that I can remember seeing.” – OWEN GLEIBERMAN, VARIETY
