New Delhi: Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann will attend the upcoming IIFA Weekend in Singapore to showcase her latest film ‘Liv and Ingmar’ that is based on her life story.

The film is an affectionate yet truthful account of the 42 years and 12 films long association between Ullman and master filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.

Ullmann, 73, has contributed in the form of two interviews and readings from her book `Changing`. The film was originally conceived, written and directed by London-based Indian filmmaker Dheeraj Akolkar.

Other Indian talents that have worked on the film are editor Tushar Ghogale and master sound designer Resul Pookutty.

The IIFA Weekend is being held from June 7-9 and Ullmann`s film will be screened to a select audience on June 8. This is also the first time that an international film will be showcased at the IIFAs.

"`Liv and Ingmar` is not made by me... But by a young and very creative filmmaker from India - Dheeraj Akolkar. He allowed even me to see many of the most important times of my life in a new and thought evoking way!

"It somehow changed some of my own memories. It gives me immense pride to be a part of the IIFA celebrations with this film. And I am looking forward to come to Singapore on this occasion," said Ullmann.
