Bergman: A Year in a Life focuses on 1957, one of the most prolific years for the Swedish director, when he shot two films, opened two of his most celebrated films: The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries, produced four plays, and a TV film, while juggling a complicated private life.

Through more than 50 interviews (including with Bergman’s elder brother Dag in a never before seen Swedish TV interview, Liv Ullmann and Roy Andersson – who tells a terrific anecdote about Bergman having to apologise to a bear) and use of archive materials, Magnusson portrays not only the artist but also a deeply flawed human being.
