Seasonal Ruminations: Melbourne Cinematheque And The Powerful Complexity Of Liv Ullmann
One of the most complex and powerful women in cinema, Liv Ullmann is a force of nature channeled both on and off-screen as Ingmar Bergman's muse, actress and at a later date independent director.
Melbourne Cinematheque is a sublime curated mix of auteur and period driven cinema that aims to reignite the passionate and educate the eager. This upcoming season highlights the Bergman period for actress and collaborator Liv Ullmann, looking at her performances in his films, but also her own directorial efforts adapted from his work. The season is book-ended perfectly, opening with Bergman's masterpiece Persona, in which Ullmann stars, and concluding with the epic 196 minute feature Private Confessions, which Ullmann directs.
