Bergman Island (2018): Marie Nyrerod’s Documentary of Seminal Director Ingmar Bergman

In celebration of Ingmar Bergman‘s 100th birthday, Marie Nyrerod’s documentary, Bergman Island, offers illuminating observations about the great seminal director.

Four years before his death, Bergman sat down with Swedish documentarian Marie Nyreröd at his home on Fårö Island to discuss his work, his fears, his regrets, and his ongoing artistic passion.

This resulted in the most breathtakingly candid series of interviews that the famously reclusive director had ever taken part in, which was later edited into the feature-length film Bergman Island

In-depth, revelatory, and packed with choice anecdotes about Bergman’s oeuvre, as well as his personal life, Nyreröd’s film provides an unforgettable final glimpse of a man who transformed cinema of the twentieth century.
