Essays and interviews illuminate the cinematic world of the Swedish master.
An Artist’s Journey brings together the best of what the greatest minds and celebrities of world cinema have written and said about Ingmar Bergman. Featuring interviews with Liv Ullmann and Lasse Bergstrom, essays by James Baldwin, Woody Allen, François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and John Lahr, and tributes by Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini, Andrzez Wajda and Ettore Scola, the collection also contains interpretative essays by leading American and European film scholars. Sixty black-and-white photographs add to the appeal of the volume.
“This ingenious little collection is [Roger W.] Oliver’s attempt to say something meaningful about Bergman, the masterful artist of many mediums—film, theater, television, print—the Renaissance artist.” —Booklist
