This exclusive exhibition from Sweden celebrates the magnificent, three-time Oscar-winning actor Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982) on the centennial of her birth. Consisting of 30 photographic prints and a multimedia installation, the exhibition chronicles the path of Bergman’s remarkable life and career, from her early work in Sweden through Hollywood stardom, followed by a period of controversy and her ultimate renaissance.
The photographic prints include work by Hollywood’s most prominent studio photographers as well as such world-renowned artists as Robert Capa, Gordon Parks and Lennart Nilsson, among others. The multimedia installation includes film clips and interview.
After its exhibition at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC, the Mill Valley Film Festival hosts its sole additional presentation in the United States, prior to its return to Europe.

The presentation will include images and film clips, and it will take place in advance of the screening of Notorious.
