Fest to screen all of helmer's features

The Berlin Film Festival will honor late Swedish helmer Ingmar Bergman with a retrospective of all his movies as a helmer.

Bergman, who died in 2007, wrote and directed more than 60 films, including such classics as “Wild Strawberries,” which won the Berlinale’s Golden Bear in 1958; 1963’s “The Silence,” 1973’s “Scenes From a Marriage” and 1982’s “Fanny and Alexander,” which won four Oscars.

The fest will also screen documentaries on Bergman by Swedish filmmaker Stig Bjoerkman.

Complementing the film program will be a series of events with lectures and discussion panels.

Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick described Bergman’s films as “part of the Berlinale’s history.”
