Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words

Seven time Academy Award nominee and three time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman worked with some of the most talented directors of her time, including Alfred Hitchcock, Roberto Rossellini and Ingmar Bergman, and shook Hollywood to its core with one of the biggest scandals in European and American cinema alike. Yet her human side remained a mystery. At least until today. In spring 2011, director Stig Björkman meets Ingrid Bergman’s daughter Isabella Rossellini, who suggests he “makes a film about Mama”. Through Isabella, Stig is able to tell Ingrid’s story through her own words and images. Aided by never-before-seen private footage, notes, letters, diaries and interviews with her children, Björkman offers up a personal portrait and captivating behind-the-scenes look of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most celebrated actresses of American and World cinema. Awarded at the Cannes Film Festival,”Ingrid Bergman in her Own Words” was scored by the inimitable Michael Nyman and voiced by Alicia Vikander.
