2018 SLIFF – Double Bill: Searching for Ingmar Bergman and Persona

Internationally renowned director Margarethe von Trotta (“The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum,” “Hannah Arendt”) takes a close look at Ingmar Bergman’s life and work on the occasion of his centennial year. Von Trotta explores Bergman’s film legacy with some of his closest collaborators — including actresses Liv Ullmann, Gunnel Lindblom, and Julia Dufvenius and director Daniel Bergman (who worked from his father’s screenplay on “Sunday’s Children”) — and such filmmakers as Olivier Assayas, Mia Hansen-Løve, Ruben Östlund, and Carlos Saura. The documentary screens with a new restoration of Bergman’s “Persona.” In the first of a series of legendary performances for Bergman, Liv Ullmann plays a stage actor who has inexplicably gone mute; an equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her in a remote island cottage. With the radical “Persona,” Bergman — already a legend at that point in his career — attained new levels of visual poetry.
