THE SCREEN DIRECTORS GUILD OF IRELAND IS HOSTING THIS YEAR’S AGM OF THE FEDERATION OF EUROPEAN FILM
AND TELEVISION DIRECTORS (FERA) IN DUBLIN. AS PART OF THIS EVENT, LIV ULLMANN, THE CURRENT PRESIDENT
OF FERA, WILL SCREEN HER FILM FAITHLESS AT THE IFI AND DISCUSS HER WORK IN A PUBLIC DISCUSSION.Directed by Ullmann from a script by the late Ingmar Bergman, Faithless is a brutally honest study of the destructive consequences of marital infidelity. Marianne (Lena Endre) is an actress who’s happily married and devoted to her young daughter. The family’s best friend is David (Krister Henriksson), a film director with a reckless attitude towards relationships. Marianne has an affair with David that destroys her marriage and brings grief to all concerned. Bergman’s script is unsparing in its portrayal of the film director’s shortcomings and sees the woman as the victim in the affair. Ullmann takes a more even-handed view of the characters’ culpability. ‘The unfaithfulness in the film is not a conscious unfaithfulness, not an act of evil,’ she insists.Neil Jordan will conduct a public interview with Liv Ullmann following the screening.This event is sponsored by FAS/Screen Training Ireland.
