Light Keeps Me Company
In this documentary, Carl-Gustaf Nykvist paints a loving portrayal of his father, Sven, a renowned cinematographer. As a young man in Sweden, Nykvist makes a career shooting nature films and working on small productions. He rises to prominence in the 1950s when he begins a collaboration with Ingmar Bergman, the Swedish auteur. Interviews with Bergman, Woody Allen and actresses like Susan Sarandon and Gena Rowlands cement his legend, while the elder Nykvist's voice narrates his own story.
