Part of Indie Memphis' "Sweden @ 24FPS" film series, presenting Swedish cinema on 35mm film in collaboration with Memphis in May. Tickets are $8 in advance and for non-members at the door / Free admission at the door for Indie Memphis members (as seating permits).
Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal, was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.
