The famous director of such films as ”The Seventh Seal” and ”Scenes from a Marriage” was 89.

Azariah Kiros talked to Astrid Söderbergh-Widding, chairperson of the Ingmar Bergman Foundation - and asked her how she received the news:

Many considered Ingmar Bergman to be the best film director of the 50’s and 60’s.

In 1982 his film ”Fanny and Alexander” won four Oscars, including Best Foreign Language Film. Altogether Bergman directed more than 40 films, as well as over 100 theater productions, and many plays for television.

In recent years he left the world of film and directed a series of highly acclaimed plays at Stockholm’s Royal Dramatic Theater.

According to his daughter, Bergman died Monday in his home on the island of Fårö.
