An-Magritt (Skouen, 1969): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.40pm

This 35mm presentation, also being shown on April 20th, is part of the Liv Ullmann season at BFI Southbank. You can find the full details here.

BFI introduction: Working with legendary Norwegian director Arne Skouen, Liv Ullmann is outstanding in the title role in this adaptation of Johan Falkberget’s 17th-century-set novel series. Born out of trauma, but unwilling to be defined by it, An-Magritt is a hard-working survivor who defies the expectations of her gender and social class. Sven Nykvist’s honest cinematography magnificently captures the hardscrabble of early industrial rural life.
