Part of the House Guests: Jo Clifford Season


Almost as revolutionary as A bout de souffle in technical terms, Persona sparkles as quite simply the richest and most multi-layered achievement of Bergman’s career. It starts with a stunning pre-credits sequence, and explores the tense, competitive relationship between a nurse (Bibi Andersson) and her patient, an actress (Liv Ullmann) who has suddenly stopped speaking for no apparent reason. Their personalities blend and blur in a bizarre osmosis, as the actress sinks her teeth – literally – into the flesh and spirit of her companion.

The screening will be introduced by Jo Clifford.
Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
