Tonights screening of The Seventh Seal
marks two occasions. It pays tribute to the great Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, who passed away in July. Seal, made in 1957, is his best work -- an existential masterpiece about a wayward knight, the grim reaper, and the worlds most famous chess match. The movie also kicks off the Cinematheques two-month 50 Years of Janus Films series, which honors the company that has distributed many foreign classics in the U.S. over the past five decades. visit www.cia.edu.
