Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann will be making her way to the Videocon IIFA Weekend between the 7 and 9 June 2012 as the 13th edition of the Indian Film IIFA Awards will be held in Singapore this year.
Liv Ullmann will also showcase her latest film, ‘Liv and Ingmar’, that is based on her life story on 8 June to an exclusive audience. This is also the first time that an international film will be showcased at the IIFAs.
The film is an affectionate yet truthful account of the 42 years and 12 films long association between Ullman and master filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.
Ullmann, 73, has contributed in the form of two interviews and readings from her book ‘Changing’. The film was originally conceived, written and directed by London-based Indian filmmaker Dheeraj Akolkar.
Other Indian talents that have worked on the film are Editor Tushar Ghogale and master sound designer Resul Pookutty.
“‘Liv and Ingmar’ is not made by me but by a young and very creative filmmaker from India, Dheeraj Akolkar. He allowed even me to see many of the most important times of my life in a new and thought evoking way,” the actress said.
“It somehow changed some of my own memories. It gives me immense pride to be part of the IIFA celebrations with this film. And I am looking forward to come to Singapore on this occasion,” Liv said.
