THROUGH A LENS DARKLY: THE FILMS OF INGMAR BERGMAN
Double Feature!
WILD STRAWBERRIES / PERSONA
WILD STRAWBERRIES
SMULTRONSTĂ„LLET
1957, Janus Films, 91 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

Bergman at his finest: An aging professor (played to perfection by Victor Sjostrom, himself a great director of the silent era) reflects on the bitter dregs of his life as he approaches his final day of reckoning. To this day few filmmakers have gazed as deeply into the human heart as Bergman did here. Co-starring the sublime Ingrid Thulin as Sjostrom’s disillusioned daughter-in-law and Gunnar Bjornstrand as his bitter son. With Bibi Andersson. In Swedish with English subtitles.


PERSONA
1966, Park Circus, 85 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

When nurse Bibi Andersson forms a close bond with mute patient Liv Ullmann, the result is a psychic transference between two very troubled women - and a masterpiece by one of the cinema's greatest directors. Bergman's haunting story of mental and emotional breakdown is as audacious in style as it is searing in content. One of the director's most powerful achievements. In Swedish with English subtitles.
