Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words
Stig Björkman

Composed from letters, diaries and home movie footage Ingrid Bergman herself shot, as well as the memories of her children (Pia Lindström and Isabella, Ingrid, and Roberto Rossellini), and a few close friends and colleagues (including Liv Ullmann and Sigourney Weaver), Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words aims to tell the story not of Bergman the international movie star, but of Bergman the woman and mother: orphaned at 13, drawn to acting on the stage and then on film, sailing for Hollywood at 24 and then leaving it all behind for a new and different life with Roberto Rossellini. This touching portrait is a timely tribute to a fiercely independent woman, and one of cinema’s most beloved icons.
