As a film director, Ingmar Bergman was also a choreographer. Throughout his films, and his theatre works, one can sense his refined choreographed language – in the beautiful movement of a head, or an arm, in the blink of an eyelid - revealing painful shortcomings and chasms in close human relationships. His “invisible hand” is constantly directing the actor in a slow dance around the room. The unspoken word through each choreography is transformed into movements instead.

The renowned and innovative Swedish choreographers Alexander Ekman, Pär Isberg, Pontus Lidberg and Joakim Stephenson, with principal dancers Jenny Nilson, Nathalie Nordquist, Oscar Salomonsson and Nadja Sellrup from the Royal Swedish Ballet, interpret Ingmar Bergman through four unique dance performances reflecting on human relations and intense feelings. The dances are linked together with images of the epic natural beauty of Fårö and Bergman’s poetic home Hammars, including the voice of the master himself - Ingmar Bergman - revealing his thoughts about movements and music.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Bergman’s birth, this movie is not only a tribute to the Swedish cineast’s unique aesthetics, but also a way to deepen his search of the ineffable, his reflection on the visual poetry of movement, and on the emotional powers of silent contemplation.
