Fridays on Film: “Persona”

. March 13, 2019.

Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 masterpiece Persona transposes the lives of two women, Alma and Elisabet onto each other as the pair become utterly indistinguishable— both physically and mentally. Shot on the remote island of Faro (home to Bergman) in black and white, Persona amazed and baffled critics alike, becoming one of the most analyzed and talked about films of the decade. In true Bergman fashion, the cinematography and story blend together elements of psychological horror, beauty, fantasy and isolation all within the film’s 80+ minutes. Fans of Persona and Bergman will be delighted to watch the movie projected from a 16mm film reel. Part of the ‘Fridays on Film Series’ at the University, which highlights classic films.
