Iain Sinclair and Ingmar Bergman’s PERSONA @ Roehampton University


Iain will be giving a talk at the University of Roehampton in Barnes (London) at 4pm on March 12th. It is open to the public.

The subject will be Ingmar Bergman’s film, PERSONA.

The talk is entitled, ‘PERSONA: Mask & Flesh. Theatre, documentation, doubling, psychosis. Film as a ritual of disengagement.’ The film will probably be screened first- more details to follow.


Come and join us for a very special day of poetry and music at the University of Essex. There will be an inpisrational range of readings, talks and performances by University alumni, staff and guests, including Iain Sinclair, Elaine Fernstein, Ian Davidson, Angela Livingstone, Philip Terry, Kelvin Corcoran, Ralk Hawkins, Chris McCully, Alexei Vernitski and others. The day will finish with live music by the wonderful singer/songwriter and poet Adrian May.
