One of the major European filmmakers, Bergman was also a prolific theatre and radio director as well as a writer. What is the relationship between his work across the different mediums of stage, film, TV and radio? How does his cinematic vision translate into and influence his theatre work and fiction writing, and vice versa? Join special guests to explore the expansive artistic world of Ingmar Bergman.
