- Twilight Room of the Soul: PersonaSat, Oct 20 / 3 pmFilm professor and writer George Toles will introduce (on Saturday) a new digital version of Bergman's masterwork Persona. Liv Ullmann plays a stage actor who has inexplicably gone mute; an equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her in a remote island cottage. Acted with astonishing nuance and shot in stark contrast and soft light by Sven Nykvist, the influential Persona is a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth.
