In his autobiographical writings, Ingmar Bergman dismissed the value of collecting and saving materials from his personal and professional life. Yet he saved an enormous amount of personal and professional material, which was collected in a room in his island home on Fårö, Sweden. The material was transferred to the Swedish Film Institute and catalogued in the Ingmar Bergman Archives. The article suggests that Bergman’s archiving project served as a response to his own mortality, a theme also evident in his late films and autobiographical writings.
