THE SEVENTH SEAL
February 17 @ 15:00 - 16:30
Deptford Cinema presents: THE SEVENTH SEAL d. Ingmar Bergman, 1957 at Deptford Cinema (17 FEB 15:00):
A disillusioned Swedish knight Antonius Block (Max von Sydow) and his squire (Gunnar Björnstrand) are home from the crusades. Black Death is sweeping their country. As they approach home, Death (Bengt Ekerot) appears to the knight and tells him it is his time. The knight challenges Death to a chess game for his life. The Knight and Death play as the cultural turmoil envelopes the people around them as they try, in different ways, to deal with the upheaval the plague has caused.
A film of visual scope, of imaginative concept, of powerful content, written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, twice honoured by the International Jury at the Cannes Film Festival 1956 & 1957.
Starts the INGMAR BERGMAN season (17 FEB to 02 MAY).
