LIV ULLMAN is of course most well-known as the muse for Ingmar Bergman films and an actress but she has also down her share of directing.
She made her stage directorial debut in 2009 at the age of 70 with a version of A Streetcar Named Desire starring Cate Blanchett but her first camera directing opportunity happened with Love (1982) a segment of nine vignettes all written and directed by women.
- “At the time the four female directors were at work in Toronto, there was not a single woman directing cameras on a movie set anywhere in the United States.” – Chicago Tribune 1/11/1981
