FRIDAY

Liv Ullmann made her screen debut in Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, and the great director is still influencing her career. Ullmann’s new Private Confessions—her fourth film as a director—is based on Bergman’s writings. Ullmann introduces the local premiere screening of her film, a shattering tale of infidelity, at 7:30 p.m. today. Tomorrow at 9:30 a.m., Ullmann joins two local academics in discussing her own work and that of Bergman and other major Scandinavian writer and filmmakers. The screening is $20 and the seminar $60; or $65 for both. At the Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. For reservations call (202) 357-3030. (MJ)
