Liv and Ingmar is an affectionate yet truthful account of the 42 years- and 12 films-long relationship between Ullmann and Bergman. It is a rollercoaster journey of extreme highs and lows, constructed as a collage of images and sounds from the timeless Ullmann-Bergman films, behind-the-scenes footage, still photographs, passages from Liv’s book ‘Changing’ and Ingmar’s love letters to Liv. Ultimately, this film is a homage – a candid and humane look – not only at two of the greatest artists of our time, but also at two wonderful human beings, two inseparable friends and soul mates.
Ingmar Bergman is the legendary Swedish master filmmaker, and their incomparable relationship is told entirely from Ullmann’s point-of-view.
Thank you Robert Newman for hosting the beautiful Liv Ullmann. She spoke before a rapt audience about her life and times with Ingmar Bergman and of her current projects.
Liv Ullmann and fan
Directing, acting, and screenwriting, her commitment to and joy in all she does was apparent. It was inspiring to know that, although she could easily rest upon her past accomplishments, she does all she does, and with such integrity. Liv’s husband Donald has been summering in Gloucester for over sixty years, she for nearly thirty, and they have come to think of Gloucester as home.
Donald Saunders and Deborah Coull
Immediately following the intimate discussion with Newton and Ullmann and the question and answer session with the audience was a screening of the her 2000 film Faithless, written by Bergman and directed by Ullmann.
Mad scramble to find additional chairs for sold-out event!
The three-year mark has long been a Big Brass Ring of sorts for small business owners. To weather so many days without hemorrhaging red ink is an accomplishment in any economy. We are happy to report that on October 1, we here at The Cape Ann Community Cinema will celebrate three whole years serving the North Shore’s die-hard film fans. And we couldn’t have done it without you.
Liv Ullmann and Robert Newton
To celebrate the start of our fourth year, we are kicking off 3 months of programming blocks: September is ‘A Foreign Affair’ (films from other countries), October marks the return of ‘DoctoberFest’ (all documentaries) and November 3-20 is The 2nd Annual Cape Ann Film Festival.
You may or may not have visited with us yet, and you may or may not have heard about the very different rules we have regarding our giant, comfortable, couch-and-recliner-bedecked living room. Yes, you can bring a meal with you (but leave the movie snacks at home).
