About the Authors
  • Long held to be among the world's greatest filmmakers, Ingmar Bergman shaped international art cinema from the 1950s to the 1980s.

The essays collected in this volume use a variety of methodologies to explore topics such as acting technique, genre, and dramaturgy. Also included are translations of Bergman's writings that have never before been available in English.
