MBS evening with film screening of ‘The Seventh Seal’ at Howard Assembly Room

£5

Our May Mind, Body & Spirit event will be a film screening of ‘The Seventh Seal’ with a 20min live music performance during the interval at the Howard Assembly Room on 25th May at 7:15 pm.

‘The Seventh Seal’ is a 1957 Swedish historical fantasy film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. Set is Sweden during the Black Death, The Seventh Seal tells of the journey of a medieval knight (Max von Sydow) and a game of chess he plays with the personification of Death (Bengt Ekerot), who has come to take his life.

Disillusioned knight Antonius Block and his cynical squire Jöns return from the Crusades to find the country ravaged by the plague. The knight encounters Death, whom he challenges to a chess match, believing he can survive as long as the game continues. The game they start continues throughout the story.

The Seventh Seal is considered a classic of world cinema, as well as one of the greatest movies of all time. It established Bergman as a world-renowned director, containing scenes which have become iconic through homages, critical analysis, and parodies.
