CANNES, France (AP) - Isabella Rossellini says it’s a moving experience to see her late mother all over Cannes.

The actress-director is the daughter of Swedish screen icon Ingrid Bergman, whose face adorns the official poster for the 68th annual festival. A giant version of the image towers over the famous red-carpeted steps of Cannes’ Palais des Festivals.

Rossellini said she feels both honored and touched by the poster, and by a Cannes premiere for a documentary about Bergman, who died in 1982.

“Yesterday, as I was walking up the red carpet with Mama enormous, I got up to (festival director) Thierry Fremaux, I said ‘Thierry, I don’t miss her anymore,’” Rossellini said Thursday. “Thirty years since she died, she’s so present. It’s wonderful.”
