Double Bill: Searching for Ingmar Bergman and Persona

Part of SLIFF

Searching for Ingmar Bergman
Margarethe von Trotta, France/Germany/Sweden, 2018, 99 min.

 Persona
Ingmar Bergman, Sweden, 1966, 83 min.

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. Searching for Ingmar Bergman 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.
