"Isn't art always, to a certain extent, therapy for the artist?" Oscilloscope Labs has debuted an official US trailer for the cinema documentary Searching for Ingmar Bergman, which first premiered as a Cannes Classic at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The documentary celebrates Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman's 100th birthday, by taking an extensive and fascinating look at his life and creative inspiration. The doc presents key scenes and recurring themes in his films and his life, and journeys to the places at the center of Bergman's creative achievement and the focal points of his life such as the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, locations and landscapes from his masterpieces, and his stations in Sweden, Germany, Spain, and France. This looks like a profound, entrancing, wonderful tribute to the life of a true master filmmaker.

Searching for Ingmar Bergman is directed by German actress / filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta, and co-directed by Felix Moeller and Bettina Böhler.

Truly a master craftsman, who created some timeless pieces of art.

One of the last of the truly great filmmakers. So many wonderful films. So many I still have yet to see. Just watching this trailer has put me in the mood for a Bergman viewing tonight.

Absolutely right on! There is no one close to him and it's hard to imagine that there ever will be another like him. It's very sad when you think of it that way, but it's true. He's probably the only filmmaker I can think of where some of his films are such incredible works of art and I loved them, but I find it too hard to watch a second time. Cries and Whispers being at the top of that list for me. Fanny & Alexander (the TV version) is probably the single most watched film for me. I think I've watched that at least a dozen times and it's a LONG one! You're right though, no one comes close these days for sure.

I can only join the others here. I remember watching his films during '90's in local art cinema around here. Fanny and Alexander, The Serpent's Egg, Cries and Whispers, Autumn Sonata and what not. He made some time in my life (and in a life of my crowd) quite memorable ...
