At the moment the Barbican is showing the stage production of Scenes from a Marriage, by Ingmar Bergman, in the theatre from November 14 – 17.

To complement the stage, they also present a short cycle of films by Bergman foregrounding the importance and influence of women in his work.

Ingmar Bergman was a Swedish director, writer and producer for film, stage and television. He is recognized as one of the most accomplished and influential film directors of all time and has directed over sixty films and documentaries.

His work is emotional and very honest, often portraying scenes of death, illness, faith, betrayal, bleakness and insanity.

Barbican are showing two films, the first one is Persona, about an actress who loses her voice during a performance and subsequently refuses to speak. The second one is Cries and Whispers, telling the angst-drenched story of a woman who is dying of cancer in the family mansion, and her two sisters who return home to comfort her.

Both films are starring the Norwegian actress and movie director Liv Ullmann.

Don’t miss out on these two beautiful films, order your tickets now at
