Ingmar Bergman’s Persona

Classic Film Night

Onstage performing Electra, Swedish Actress Elizabeth Volger (Liv Ullmann) suddenly becomes mute, and will not speak again.

She is then put in the care of a young nurse named Alma (Bibi Andersson) and, under instruction from Elizabeth’s psychologist, they spend the summer in respite at an isolated beach house.

To break the silence, Alma talks and confesses her hopes and fears to an ever quiet Elizabeth, and the two women somehow merge.
