Summer of Ingrid Bergman

This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman. She's already being honored at the current Cannes Film Festival, which I am sorry to report that I will not be attending. Unsurprisingly, since Bergman's 100th will be coming up later this year, there are going to be other commemorations.

On Wednesday, Radio Sweden's English Service had an interview with somebody from the Swedish Film Institute discussing some of the tribues that are goign to be paid to Bergman later in the year. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a link to the individual interview. If you want to download a copy of Wednesday's entire show, you can do so here; that's a 28-minute program and about 26MB. Radio Sweden's programs are available for 30 days, I think, from the time they're posted, so you've got four more weeks to get the interview if you want.
