Great Directors: Ingmar Bergman

Friday, February 8 – Thursday, February 14, 2013

Returning from the Crusades to a plague-ridden homeland, a wearied knight (Max von Sydrow) plays a fateful game of chess with Death incarnate in the director’s groundbreaking allegorical masterpiece. Read more about THE SEVENTH SEAL in Film Notes.

"THE SEVENTH SEAL and the other Bergman masterpieces that soon followed it—WILD STRAWBERRIES, THE MAGICIAN, and THE VIRGIN SPRING—were as important to the development of world cinema as the New Wave in France or the work of Fellini, Antonioni and Bertolucci in Italy. Bergman’s work proved that essential philosophical and human issues could be explored on film and still reach a wide audience." —Peter Cowie for the Criterion Collection
