Bergman and Faro Island
The Bergman TrilogyStreaming Video - 2012 | Swedish
The demons don't like fresh air, mutters an aged Ingmar Bergman, revealing two reasons for his self-imposed isolation on a remote Swedish island. The famed director allows journalist Marie Nyrerod and her cameras to invade his solitude, steering this program away from what it could easily be-a depiction of end-of-life regret and loneliness-toward a celebration of living, creating, and communing with nature. Steeped in memories, Bergman nevertheless connects them with his present environment, which, when he first arrived in 1960, gave him "a strange sense of having come home." Faro also presented him with several shooting locations; viewers are shown where Persona was shot as well as a host of other meaningful sites. Archival images supplement this visually rich exploration.
