The Seventh Seal

Dec 10th - Dec 11th • (All day) • The Frida Cinema

The Frida Cinema’s Ingmar Bergman retrospective continues with his 1957 cinema classic The Seventh Seal, based on the legendary director’s stage play about the post-Crusades journey home of an existentially lost, shell-shocked Swedish knight who challenges mortality— just then visiting northern Europe as the Black Death— to a chess match. His own life is at stake, not to mention God’s existence and ours, as he cheats for a chance at redemption in this dark, funny, inspiring allegory of resistance through intellectual and emotional curiosity. “Do you never stop asking questions?” asks black-robed Death. “Never!” insists our anti-hero. The Frida never stops screening, with four chances to root for life.
