Born On This Day – July 14, 1918

Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman, Liv Ullman

“I never considered myself anything more than as a craftsman, a hell of a skilled craftsman, if I may so myself, but nothing more. I create things that are meant to be useful, films or theatrical productions. I’ve never felt the need for … what’s the word? … sub specie aeternitatis. I have never created for the sake of eternity. I was only interested in producing the good work of a fine craftsman. Yes, I am proud to call myself a craftsman who makes chairs and tables that are useful to people.”

“One must make each film as if it were the last.” –Ingmar Bergman
