To say that Ingmar Bergman has influenced other filmmakers would be a truism. But in what ways has he influenced them, and which of his films continue to shape the work of screenwriters and directors today?
Stig Björkman, Swedish writer and filmmaker. His film work includes fiction and documentaries, often focusing on film personalities among other Ingrid Bergman and Ingmar Bergman.
Olivier Assayas (to be confirmed), French screenwriter and filmmaker. He has very eclectic cinematographic tastes, and wrote about subjects as diverse as Kung Fu films and Ingmar Bergman in Les Cahiers du Cinéma in the 1990s and published the book Conversation With Bergman with Stig Björkman.
Mia Hansen Løve (to be confirmed), French filmmaker. She began her career as an actor but quickly moved into filmmaking. She made her first feature-length film Tout est pardonné when she was 26. She is currently working on a fiction film, Bergman Island, filmed on the island of Fårö in Sweden this autumn.
In French and Swedish with consecutive translation in French.
