Introduction by Professor Susan Felleman.

Join us to celebrate the centennial of legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman with a special screening of his most groundbreaking film!

Now widely considered one of the most accomplished filmmakers of all time, by the mid-1960s Ingmar Bergman was already a two-time Academy Award winner and the recipient of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

However, Persona was a radical break from the thoughtful chamber dramas he had made in the past. The story of the melding identities of a psychiatric patient and her seemingly supportive nurse, this essential film left an indelible impression on filmmakers including David Lynch (especially Mulholland Drive), Woody Allen, and Robert Altman.
