100th Birth Anniversary of Ingrid Bergman

The Museum of Moving Image and the Brooklyn Academy of Music has programmed a retrospective on Ingrid Bergman, playing most of her important films through September to celebrate the 100th anniversary of her birth.
Some of these films will be introduced by Bergman’s three daughters - Pia Lindstrom, Ingrid Rossellini, and Isabella Rossellini, Indiewire.com reported.
August 29 marked the 100th birth anniversary, an occasion the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), located in Manhattan, New York, also observed with a selection of films from her 50-year career - as chosen and, where possible, introduced by her children.
The emotional transparency of Bergman’s performing style blended with her great natural beauty to create a different kind of movie star. In films like ‘Casablanca’ (1942), ‘Gaslight’ (1944) and ‘Notorious’ (1946), Bergman seemed to speak directly to her public, cutting through melodramatic conventions.
Bergman’s search for authenticity eventually led to Italy, where she made five features with the pioneering Neorealist director Roberto Rossellini, a body of work now recognized as one of the foundations of modern cinema.
Her last theatrical film, Ingmar Bergman’s Autumn Sonata (1978), brought her back to her native Sweden.
Marking the centennial of Ingrid Bergman’s birth, Isabella Rossellini also performed a theatrical tribute to her mother, one of the most celebrated actresses of the 20th century.
Rossellini was joined in performance by actor Jeremy Irons to uncover the woman and artist behind the screen legend. The staging incorporates Rossellini’s own memories of her mother, plus interviews, unpublished letters, personal videos, and previously unreleased video clips and images from Bergman’s private archives.
 Other famous works in which Bergman acted include, ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’, ‘Spellbound’, ‘Anastasia’, ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.
Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982) was a Swedish actress who starred in a variety of European and American films. She won three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards and the Tony Award for Best Actress. She is ranked as the fourth greatest female star, out of 25, of American cinema of all time by the American Film Institute.
She died in 1982 on her 67th birthday in London, of breast cancer.
