Vrijdag 14/11 Spinema: Persona (1966) + Les Maitres Fous (1956)

PERSONA   1966
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
85 minutes
In Swedish with English subtitles

Wow, can you imagine a film like this was once popular, drawing audiences worldwide? This is totally inconceivable today, when cinema has been commercialized and dumbed down to the level of baby food. Persona was made at a time when people were really open to different  possibilities, and this film is a perfect example of how cinema was once really adventurous and could steer out into uncharted territory.

When Ingmar Bergman conjured up this movie his life was hell, and he was suffering from depression. But that is probably one of the reasons why this film is so uncompromising and radically unique. It was born out of a terrible suffering, the kind of existential dilemma that forces an artist to go to the very source of things.

Persona is about identity, and revolves around the story of an actress who, in the middle of a theater performance, suddenly stops talking for no reason. The movie follows her as she enters a clinic, where everything becomes more and more surreal. Sven Nykvist’s cinematography is both luminescent and razor-sharp at the same time, resulting in some truly haunting images. Starring Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann and Gunnar Björnstrand.

This will be a high-definition screening.
+ short film:  LES MAITRES FOUS 1956
Directed by Jean Rouch
30 minutes
Ethnologist Jean Rouch’s groundbreaking and mind-blowing anthropological study of possession rituals in West Africa.
