THE SEVENTH SEAL (SWEDEN/1956/B&W/96mins/ 16mm/NFSA / 18+)Dir: Ingmar Bergman
Although in some ways the film’s psychological and erotic concerns are modern and the world weary knight who challenges Death to a game of chess is a distinctly modern hero, Bergman chose the medieval period for the way in which thought was then embodied iconographically, providing the basis for the film’s striking imagery.
