Ingmar Bergman Exhibition at the Film Museum, Berlin


Ingmar Bergman was born on July 14, 1918 in Uppsala, Sweden, the son of a Lutheran pastor, Erik Bergman and his wife Karin, née Åkerblom. His strict, Protestant parental home lastingly influenced him and Bergman made reference to childhood memories many times in his oeuvre. The sensitive, imaginative boy frequently protected himself from hurt and humiliation by fibbing. Later, the fine line between truth and lies – becoming slander, deceit and self-deception – would run through Bergman’s work as leitmotifs.

Throughout his career Ingmar Bergman produced 130 stage productions, 42 radio productions, 23 television plays and 39 movies. His work has received numerous international awards, including three Academy Awards (Oscars) for Best Foreign Language Film. Directors, such as Woody Allen, Federico Fellini, Stanley Kubrick and Billy Wilder, have shown admiration for Bergman. In 1997, at the Cannes Film Festival, he was the first person in the history of the festival to be awarded its highest prize, the “Palme des Palmes,” for his life’s work. Bergman’s films, spanning from dramas to comedies and intimate plays to opulent costume films, are strongly inspired by the landscape and literature of Scandinavia, yet they are universal.

The exhibition includes select items from Bergman's personal correspondence, costumes and props from Bergman's films, stills, screenplays and film clips. Below are some examples:
