The Seventh Seal

Limited Run in 35mm 

THE SEVENTH SEAL is Bergman’s best-known film (so famous that it has been endlessly parodied in popular culture).

The film’s darkness and starkness are not just aesthetic choices suggested by the brooding austerity of medieval paintings, but were dictated by Bergman’s small budget and short shooting schedule. 

“The Seventh Seal [was] as important to the development of world cinema as the New Wave in France or the work of Fellini, Antonioni and Bertolucci … [it] continues to enthrall each new generation with its complex investigation of love, self-sacrifice, and the problems of pain and death” (Peter Cowie).
