SYNOPSIS

If cinema was a religion, this would be Mecca, the Vatican. This is the centre of it all. - Alejandro González Iñárritu, on visiting the home of Ingmar Bergman

This entertaining and engaging documentary gets up close and personal with the legacy of the eponymous director by inviting a litany of A-list devotees into Bergman's house on the island of Fårö in Sweden. These filmmakers and actors explore Bergman's life and work while quite literally exploring his house, discussing the impact his work had on them and the cinema world at large. What could have been a mere gimmick instead becomes the trigger for eloquent revelations about the importance of a great artist.

Trespassing Bergman features interviews with major directors (from Martin Scorsese to Woody Allen, Michael Haneke to Lars von Trier, Clare Denis to Wes Anderson), actors (including Isabella Rossellini and Laura Dern), and former collaborators (including Harriet Andersson and Pernilla August). It is a lighthearted but substantive study of a deeply influential filmmaker.
