LIV AND INGMAR Liv Ullman in person at October 1 screening!
She was 25, a new actress with a handful of films on her resume; he was 46 and widely considered one of the greatest living filmmakers. He invited her to work on a film called Persona, and the rest is cinematic history. Over twelve films in which he directed her, and two films she made based on his screenplays, Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman formed one of the most remarkable and fruitful artistic collaborations ever. The intensity of their work on screen was matched by their passion off screen; they fell in love, and for about five years lived as a couple. Yet even after their romantic break-up they continued to be, as Bergman put it, “painfully connected.” Narrated by Ms. Ullman, Dheeraj Akolkar’s elegant film shows how much their relationship became the subtext—and perhaps in a few cases such as Scenes from a Marriage, the actual text—for many of the masterworks they created together.
The fact I’m missing this makes me want to scream out in anguish. Living goddess Liv…

Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.

Happy Birthday Ingmar Bergman.
I need to have a Bergman day in his honor, being the best filmmaker of all time.
Winter Light// Nattvardsgästerna (Ingmar Bergman - 1963)
God, why have you created me so eternally dissatisfied? So frightened, so bitter? Why must I realize how wretched I am? Why must I suffer so hellishly for my insignificance? If there is a purpose to my suffering, then tell me, so I can bear my pain without complaint. I’m strong. You made me so very strong in both body and soul, but you never give me a task worthy of my strength. Give my life meaning, and I’ll be your obedient slave
Louis Huch, 1953
