Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
The film is the final entry in Bergman's loose thematic 'Faith Trilogy', with each film acting as a different meditation on the notion of the silence of God.

The Silence finds two sisters – the elder, Ester (Ingrid Thulin), serious-minded and stricken by illness, and Anna (Gunnel Lindblom), younger and more sensuous – travelling with Anna's young son Johan. During a stopover at a hotel in a fictional European country teetering on the brink of war, tensions begin to simmer over between the sisters. Anna finds Ester's illness burdensome and begins to attack her sister by means of her carnality. The film finds Bergman at his dreamiest. It is a surreal exploration of humanity, spirituality and sexuality that follows no strict logic – nevertheless, it still finds revelation in its intimate flow.

The Silence will screen from an archival 35mm film print.
