Fri/Sat 8 pm, Sun 6 pm

Directed by Dheeraj Akolkar
Rated Not Rated, 89 min.

This film is a love story – encompassing the 42 years and 12 films – between legendary actress Liv Ullmann and master filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. With behind-the-scenes footage, photographs, and letters, we are shown an affectionate yet truthful account of two intertwined and extraordinary lives. Told from Liv Ullmann’s point of view, this is a candid look, not only at two of the greatest cinema artists of our time, but at two all-too-human beings.

A lovely and lyrical documentary about the passionate, mutually inspiring yet fraught relationship between the late filmmaker Ingmar Bergman and his lover, frequent collaborator and, ultimately, dear friend, actress Liv Ullmann. – Los Angeles Times
