Liv & Ingmar (2012) A Film by Dheeraj Akolkar

In honor of Liv Ullmann's 75th birthday, NYC's Film Society of Lincoln Center is holding a week-long celebration of the actress' collaborations with Ingmar Bergman, and the brief retrospective kicks off with this documentary, a rather disproportionately gushy opening act to a series of bleak, intense dramas.
