FILM: Special Screening of Ingrid Berman: In Her Own Words
October 13 at 6:30 pm, Goethe-Institut Washington

As part of the centennial celebration of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman's birth this year, Embassy of Sweden will be screening the acclaimed Swedish documentary followed by Q&As with Swedish writer, director and film critic Stig Björkman.

One of Hollywood’s most radiant and beloved European imports, Ingrid Bergman becomes more of an icon with every passing year. In this acclaimed documentary, Stig Bjorkman has created an intimate portrait that spans the significant periods of Bergman’s career: the Swedish period, the Hollywood period, and the Italian period. A combination of never-before-seen private footage, notes, letters, diaries and interviews with Bergman’s children (Pia Lindström, Isabella and Ingrid Rossellini and son Renato Rossellini), and a few close friends and colleagues (including Liv Ullmann and Sigourney Weaver), from thousands of feet of Super-8 and 16mm footage shot by Bergman herself throughout the years, results in this documentary that is both celebratory and revelatory.

This is a captivating look behind-the-scenes of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most beloved and celebrated actresses of American and European cinema.

Limited seating, a reservation is required to attend.
Please note that the screening will start at 6:30 PM sharp!
Reception to follow Q&A.
