Interview with Liv Ullmann and Dheeraj Akolkar - Star and Director of Liv & Ingmar

When you are given an opportunity to meet a legend in the film business you don't turn it down.  So I headed to meet Liv Ullmann who has appeared in more movies than I can count and as of late has became a great director.  She directed Cate Blanchett in the terrific revival of A Streetcar Named Desire which I saw in NY a couple of years ago.
