Summary

Liv Ullmann (b. 1938) has played many roles over the course of her long life: actress, mother, activist, author, and director. Her lead performances in such Ingmar Bergman classics asPersona,Scenes from a Marriage, andCries and Whisperskept her in close proximity to crafts involved in screenwriting, film direction, and production. In 1992, Ullmann directed her first filmSofieand, with the quick succession of such recent masterpieces asPrivate Confessions,Kristin Lavransdatter, andFaithless, Ullmann has emerged as one of the most challenging, startling filmmakers working today.Tracing her artistic evolution,Liv Ullmann: Interviewsreveals how her acting and her personal life have shaped her filmmaking. She also does not shy away from exploring her complicated relationship with Bergman. Ullmann candidly discusses how Bergman's work-he wrote the screenplays forPrivate ConfessionsandFaithless-has influenced her own, but she also points out the ways in which she has diverged from his cinematic and moral vision. She talks about her feminist activism, her interest in Jewish culture, and her work as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, and how all of these experiences have affected her filmmaking.The volume features interviews and profiles from the early 1970s through 2004 and closes with a long interview conducted by the editor specifically for this volume.Liv Ullmann: Interviewsprovides an unusually intimate look at how a major filmmaker has developed her craft, both in front of and behind the camera.Robert Emmet Long is the author of over forty books, includingJames Ivory in Conversation: How Merchant Ivory Makes Its Movies,The Films of Merchant Ivory, andBroadway, the Golden Years: Jerome Robbins and the Great Choreographer-Directors, 1940 to the Present.
