Lee, Schamus to honor Bergman

'Storm' helmer will give speech about 'Strawberries'

STOCKHOLM — Helmer Ang Lee and producer James Schamus are among guests at Bergman Week, an annual celebration of the work of helmer Ingmar Bergman, which began Tuesday on the small Swedish island of Faro.

The director-producer/scriptwriter duo’s “The Ice Storm” will screen at the festival, and Lee will pay tribute to his hero by giving a speech on how 1957’s “Wild Strawberries” inspired his filmmaking.

Other guests include actress Harriet Andersson, who will talk about the shooting of 1961’s “Through a Glass Darkly,” the first Bergman pic shot on Faro, the island in the Baltic Sea that is still his home.

The six-day Bergman Week is organized by the Goteborg Film Festival in cooperation with local authorities. The auteur will be 88 on July 14.

The Ingmar Bergman Foundation recently launched an English-language version of its http://www.ingmarbergman.se Web site.
