FILM: Nordic-Baltic Film festival in Ottawa
The Bright Nights Baltic-Nordic Filmfestival will showcase eight films never before seen in Ottawa. Sweden's contribution is the critically acclaimed movie: "Jag är Ingrid" (Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words) by Stig Björkman.
Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words is a documentary movie about one of cinema’s most luminous and enchanting presences. Stig Björkman’s focus is not on Bergman the star but on Bergman the woman and mother: orphaned at 13, drawn to acting on the stage and then on film, sailing for Hollywood at 24 and then leaving it all behind for a new and different life with Roberto Rossellini. Björkman’s film is a remarkable portrait of a truly independent woman, an utterly captivating look at the life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most celebrated actresses of American and world cinema.
Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words: Thursday, February 18, 2016, 7:00 pm, River Building Theatre, Carleton University.
