Twice an Academy Award® Winner and considered one of the foremost cinematographers in the history of film, Sven Nykvist is best known for his work with Ingmar Bergman, with whom he created some of the most important films of modern cinema. Despite a tumultuous personal life that included the tragic suicide of his oldest son and a sweeping love affair with Mia Farrow, Nykvist continued to collaborate on projects with filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Louis Malle, Andrei Tarkovsky, Roman Polanski and many others. In 1998 he was diagnosed with Aphasia, an affliction that would end his career. Lovingly directed by his son Carl-Gustaf,LIGHT KEEPS ME COMPANY includes film clips, rare home movies, family photographs, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with some of the legends who've worked with him.

A fitting tribute to a genius who worked on films such as 'Chaplin' , Fanny And Alexander' 'Cries And Whispers' and many of my other favorite films. Directed by his son Carl- Gustav .
