Description

THE SEVENTH SEAL

An epic historical fantasy in which A man seeks answers about life, death, and the existence of God as he plays chess against the Grim Reaper during the Black Plague.
Returning exhausted from the Crusades to find medieval Sweden gripped by the Plague, a knight (Max von Sydow) suddenly finds himself face-to-face with the hooded figure of Death, and challenges him to a game of chess. As the fateful game progresses, and the knight and his squire encounter a gallery of outcasts from a society in despair, Bergman mounts a profound inquiry into the nature of faith and the torment of mortality. One of the most influential films of its time, The Seventh Seal is a stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning and a work of stark visual poetry. (Sweden, 1957, 96 min., NR, Swedish with English subtitles| Dir. Ingmar Bergman)

Ingmar Bergman (1918–2007) stands as one of the giants of world cinema and perhaps the father of the flowering of art house movement in America during the 1960s and ’70s. This selection of some of his greatest works feature new digital restorations courtesy of Janus Films and the Swedish Film Institute.
