Just when it seemed like the festival talk was winding down, the Berlin International Film Festival has announced exciting plans for a complete Ingmar Bergman retrospective during its sixty-first edition, in early 2011. The series will include all of Bergman’s own films, plus some that he wrote, documentaries about his life and work by Stig Björkman, and a number of lectures and events. The festival’s website promises that the series will feature mostly new prints. Also, to coincide with the retrospective, the Deutsche Kinemathek will present the traveling exhibition Ingmar Bergman—Truth and Lies (currently in Los Angeles), beginning in mid-January.
