But Film Is My Mistress

"But Film is My Mistress" is the second of two films - written and directed by Stig Björkman. The Film is an attempt to capture Ingmar Bergman’s extraordinary filmmaker persona based on behind-the scenes footage from eight movies, from Persona in 1965 to Saraband in 2003. Guided by Liv Ullmann and with commentaries from a number of prominent filmmakers for whom Bergman is and remains an important influence – such as Woody Allen, Olivier Assayas, Bernardo Bertolucci, Arnaud Desplechin, John Sayles, Martin Scorsese and Lars von Trier, the film provides a vivid portrait of the artist who in each new project found a challenge for himself and for the people he worked with – both actors and colleagues behind the camera.
