Swedish Filmmaker Bergman Buried on Baltic Island

Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman was buried Saturday on his home island in the Baltic Sea.

Family members and close friends, including actresses Live Ullman and Bibi Andersson, attended the private funeral on Faro Island.

Bergman made more than 50 films and is considered one of the most influential directors of the 20th century. His films, including "Wild Strawberries," "Cries and Whispers" and "Scenes from a Marriage" explored human relationships, mortality and madness and were tinged with melancholy, anger, and humor.

"The Seventh Seal" includes one of cinema's most iconic images - a medieval knight playing chess with a person representing Death while the plague rages around them.

Bergman died on July 30 at the age of 89.
