Memory of the World Register

Sweden - Ingmar Bergman Archives

The Ingmar Bergman Archives document the work of one of the most outstanding film directors of the 20th century. In 1997 Ingmar Bergman won the “Palm of Palms” award at the Cannes Film Festival. Furthermore the holdings reflect the career of one of Europe's most innovative and prolific stage directors, whose work has also extended to directing operas and radio plays. He is also acknowledged as a major writer: his screenplays and autobiography Laterna Magica (The Magic Lantern) have been translated into more than 30 languages. The archives include hand and type-written original manuscripts, drafts, notebooks, production papers, photographs and behind-the-scenes-footage from the shooting of his films, and private and professional correspondence.
