Members’ Screening: Persona
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Persona, dir. Ingmar Bergman, Sweden 1966, 84 mins, Swedish with English subtitles

Elizabeth, a famed stage actress (played by Liv Ullmann in her first Bergman role) suddenly lapses into silence during a performance of Electra. Alma, a nurse (played by Bibi Andersson) is charged with the actresses’ care, first at a clinic and then at a remote summerhouse loaned to them by Elizabeth’s psychiatrist. As Alma struggles to reach her mute patient, the two women find themselves experiencing a strange emotional convergence. Persona’s dense theatrical drama is matched by Bergman’s deeply experimental formalist interjections, as the director seems to burn, tear, and break the screen itself. From its frenzied opening montage, Persona remains as radical as it was in 1966.
Held on the last weekend of every month, Members’ Screenings are a chance for viewers to engage with films which relate to the most exciting new releases at the ICA Cinema, providing audiences with greater context and insight into key directors’ works.
