This episode focuses on Max Von Sydow Discovering Film: Max Von Sydow is a closer look at the life and career of the late Max von Sydow, the Swedish actor known for collaboration with director Ingmar Bergman in such films as The Seventh Seal. Max Carl Adolf von Sydow was born on 10th April 1929 in Lund Sweden. His father, Carl Wilhelm von Sydow was an ethnologist and professor of folkloristics at Lund University. Baroness Maria Margareta Rappe, mother of Max von Sydow was a school teacher. He was of part-German ancestry as his parental ancestor, David Sydow emigrated from Pomerania to the Kalmar region in 1724. Baroness was also part of Pomeranian descent. Max was originally expected to pursue a career in law but he came interested in acting after seeing a production of Midsummer Night's Dream during a class trip. This promoted him to establish an amateur theatrical group with his friends. Then followed his 70-year career in European and American cinema, television and theatre. One of the greatest actors of the twentieth century, von Sydow is best known for his long creative partnership with director Ingmar Bergman, whose psychologically probing dramas—including their most famous collaboration, THE SEVENTH SEAL—gave the actor freedom to bare his soul and showcase his unfailingly commanding screen presence. In addition to the string of masterpieces he made with the Swedish auteur, von Sydow embodied a wide range of characters in films by art-house titans such as Jan Troell, Lars von Trier, and Wim Wenders, leaving behind a body of work that spans more than six decades and a dozen different countries. He appeared in more than one hundred and fifty films and television series in multiple languages. Max von Sydow received his French citizenship in 2002 and lived in France for the last two decades of his life. Series Produced & Directed by Lyndy Saville ; 3DD Productions Ltd
