Film Club

Film Club is approaching....
We will be meeting Thursday, Feb. 17th in the large meeting room. This month we will be watching Ingmar Bergman's- The Seventh Seal. Set during the Black Death, it tells of the journey of a medieval knight (Max von Sydow) and a game of chess he plays with the personification of Death, who has come to take his life. The film is considered a major classic of world cinema. It helped Bergman to establish himself as a world-renowned director.
This is probably my personal favorite of Ingmar Bergman's films, right up there with Persona, Wild Strawberries, Hour of the Wolf, and The Silence (all of which are worth checking out if you have a chance). If you are feeling adventurous and don't mind a little subtitling, come and join us, and be ready for some discussion!
Here is the trailer:
