Ingmar Bergman’s behind the scenes footage of Wild Strawberries

Leave a comment

This color 16mm footage shot by Ingmar Bergman on the set of his Wild Strawberries was originally silent, and here has a little bit of commentary added by Criterion.

I love this sort of thing – a cross between found footage and cinéma vérité, with all the beautiful texture of 16mm film. It’s not quite candid and unstaged, because you’re seeing a very designed environment through the eye of the artist who designed it, but nor is it scripted or designed to be narrative in any sense.
