Bergman on Bergman

YouTube has a 4-parter of Jorn Donner's 1998 interview with Ingmar Bergman.

When Bergman died I became intrigued by Faro, as it was so important to him, and here, there are some glimpses which you can't really find elsewhere.

It is not just head-to-head: there are biographical pieces, including family stills, and longish chunk of the 10 nerve-shattering thwacks scene in Fanny and Alexander. Donner, Finnish, is a director in is own right, was the producer of FaA. This goes a long way to explain the intimacy of the interview. They must have been friends.
