In celebration of Liv Ullmann, recipient of the 2019 ASF Gold Medal, Scandinavia House presents two special evenings with the acclaimed actress and director, followed by a retrospective of her roles and work with leading auteurs.

At tonight’s event, Liv Ullmann returns to present and discuss her last cinematic project as a director, the 2014 film Miss Julie /Frøken Julie, based on the 1888 play by August Strindberg.

Set in late 19th-century Ireland, the film follows the unsettled daughter of a wealthy landlord as she attempts to seduce her father’s valet over the course of one midsummer’s night. The affair soon takes the pair to dark places, with questions of power, class, and gender at stake. Starring Jessica Chastain, Collin Farrell, and Samantha Morton, Miss Julie received critical acclaim on its release, described as “fervent, cerebral, unashamedly intense” (Variety) with “spellbinding performances” (Toronto Sun).

A screening of the film will follow the discussion.
