Internationally renowned actress-writer-director Liv Ullmann discussed her life and career on November 23, in conjunction with a screening of the film AUTUMN SONATA. The Norwegian-born star, who has appeared in over fifty films and helmed five features, offered insight into her decades-long collaboration with the Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman as well as her experiences working with co-star Ingrid Bergman in the 1978 mother-daughter drama. She also contemplated her latest directorial venture, MISS JULIE, starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, and Samantha Morton, which opens in theaters December 5.
The AUTUMN SONATA screening was part of the ongoing Cosford Classics series, which shows historically significant films in their original 35mm format, in partnership with the Norton Herrick Center for Motion Picture Studies. The event was moderated by Dr. Christina Lane, Associate Professor of Film Studies in the Department of Cinema and Interactive Media.
