Late Swedish filmmaker INGMAR BERGMAN has been buried in a private ceremony on his home island in the Baltic sea.
The writer/director died last month (30Jul07) at the age of 89. He was laid to rest in a plain wood coffin in the churchyard on the island of Faro this weekend (18-19Aug07).
Local media reports only a small circle of family and friends attended.
Bergman's remains were buried on a site that he had chosen at the cemetery, the family said in a statement.
