In the early 50s, Ingmar Bergman got himself a cine camera, a 9.5 mm Bell & Howell, which he often used both privately and in his work. Images from the Playground draws upon this body of footage to create a rich and varied portrait of one of the greatest cinematic artists of all time. These images from the director’s grown-up playground are accompanied by Bergman’s own commentaries from various interviews. While actresses Harriet Andersson and Bibi Andersson – exposed to Bergman’s loving eye in these lavish documentary sequences – also contribute with vivid personal accounts.
