Spring 2018 Film and Lecture Series: 'The Seventh Seal' - April 26

The campus community is invited to attend a free screening of Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal, hosted by Zachary E. Malone, lecturer in the English Department, on Thursday, April 26, at 6:30 p.m. in Upton Hall 230. This event is part of the English Department's Spring 2018 Film and Lecture Series.

A short (10- to 15-minute) introduction on the film's context, symbolism, and relevant themes will precede the film, and a Q&A will follow. Everyone is welcome.

From the Criterion Collection:

"Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight 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 (Det sjunde inseglet), 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."
