Replacing the originally scheduled “Swamp Thing,” UNM-Los Alamos Monster Movie Wednesday will feature Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 classic “The Seventh Seal” (Black and white, 1 hour 36 mins) at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the UNM-LA Lecture Hall in Bldg. 2. The movie is free and open to the public.
Starring Max von Sydow, this dark but beautifully filmed piece is considered a cinematic masterpiece and has been said to explore such themes as man’s relationship with death, the silence between 20th-century man and God, the nature of pessimism, and the haunting of humanity.
The film takes place in a time ravaged by plague and war in which a knight returns home, disillusioned, and finds himself sitting down to a game of chess with Death as his opponent.
A chilling yet thoughtful film on the condition of humanness.
Monster Movie Wednesdays will continue with “Shadow of a Vampire” on Dec. 1 and “Interview with a Vampire” on Dec. 8.
