Ingmar Bergman Auction + Montreal Film Festival Winners

Clapperboard used in Ingmar Bergman's 1962 drama The Silence

Nearly 340 items that belonged to Ingmar Bergman are to be auctioned by Bukowskis in Stockholm on Sept. 28. Among the items are film cameras, Golden Globe awards, and the chess set that was “probably” used by Max von Sydow's Antonius Block and Bengt Ekerot's Death in the 1957 classic The Seventh Seal.

Also in the auction are a wooden puppet autographed by the actors featured in From the Life of the Marionettes; a portrait of Bergman taken in 1964 by American photographer Irving Penn; a puppet theater similar to the one used in Fanny and Alexander; photographs showing Bergman next to Igor Stravinsky and Bruce the Shark (from Jaws); portraits of cinematographer Sven Nykvist and actor-director Victor Sjöström; and an old suitcase covered in stickers with which Bergman traveled to Cairo and Rome.

According to various reports, Bergman had it stipulated in his will that those assets be auctioned so as to prevent them from being caught up in some “kind of emotional hullabaloo.”

As per Bukowskis spokeswoman Charlotte Bergstrom, interest has been so great that even the limited-edition Bergman auction catalog has become a collector's item.

Ingmar Bergman died in his sleep at his home on the island of Fårö, off the coast of Sweden, in 2007. He was 89.

2009 Montreal World Film Festival Awards

2009 Montreal World Film Festival (Montreal Festival des Films du Monde): Aug. 27–Sept. 7, 2009

Set in occupied France during World War IIFreedom follows a Gypsy family as they travel throughout the French countryside until legal maneuvers prevent them from continuing with their nomadic ways. Not long thereafter, they are arrested and placed in an internment camp. "I have been thinking about shooting a film on the Roma Holocaust since I began making films…," Algerian-born filmmaker Tony Gatlif says on the Montreal World Film Festival website. "It is important that those who don't know, learn that the Roman [sic] were deported in France and in the whole of Europe. That they learn of the evil laws of 1912 (anthropometric identity cards) against the Gypsies, and the Vichy laws which forbade nomadism on French territory: those laws which led to the Nazi extermination camps." In the Freedomcast: Marc Lavoie, Marie-Josée Croze, James Thiérrée, Rufus.
