Ingmar Bergman’s dark masterpiece
From Hollywood popcorn flicks to experimental arthouse, the WYSIWYG film nights serve up a wealth of divergent cinematic experience. Tonight, WYSIWYG celebrate their two-year anniversary and to mark the occasion they’re hosting not one but two special screening evenings. Theme of this special edition is the mysterious, beautiful and occult sides of nature. As an added bonus, artist and designer Anne Kranenborg will transform the viewing experience, omitting the usual velvet seats, to further strengthen the experience of the films.
The Seventh Seal is a Swedish black-and-white drama, that depicts a troubled knight who, upon returning from his crusades, stands eye to eye with Death. To prolong his life and find answers to life’s most fundamental questions, he challenges his opponent to a match of chess on a deserted beach.
Saturday 30 June features a screening of Picnic at Hanging Rock by Peter Weir.
