Unesco to preserve Bergman archives

Film items added to Memory of the World register

STOCKHOLM — United Nations cultural organization Unesco added multihyphenate Ingmar Bergman’s archives to its Memory of the World register on Tuesday.

Bergman donated his personal archives to the Swedish Film Institute in 2002. It consists of numerous scripts, notebooks, production materials, photos, documentation from film shoots and letters.

The donation led to the founding of Stiftelsen Ingmar Bergman, where the goal is to preserve the materials and spread knowledge about the director’s work and of Swedish film in general.

The Unesco register was set up in 1997 to preserve valuable archives and library collections.

The annual Bergman Week is presently unspooling on Faro, the Swedish island in the Baltic Sea where Bergman lives.

Guest of honor is Kenneth Branagh, who will screen his adaptation of “The Magic Flute.” Organizers hope that Bergman, who will be 90 next year, will attend some of the events.
