Liv Ullmann, Film Subject
Kirk Simon, Filmmaker
Karen Goodman, Filmmaker

Liv Ullmann, living legend of cinema and theater, has just directed a production of A Streetcar Named Desire that stars Cate Blanchett and opens at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in November. While Ullmann was preparing that production, a documentary, The Sealed Orders of Liv Ullmann, captured her mentoring young actors through scenes from this same Tennessee Williams play. The Paley Center will premiere this film by four-time Academy Award nominees Kirk Simon and Karen Goodman, which underscores the importance of passing artistic experience from one generation to the next. Afterward, Ms. Ullmann will discuss her adaptation of Streetcar and various television versions of the play from the Paley Center collection.
