“I want knowledge! Not faith, not assumptions, but knowledge.”

In this episode, we take a snob-free look at 1957 classic The Seventh Seal, directed by Ingmar Bergman, starring Bergman regulars Max von Sydow and Gunnar Björnstrand. This iconic film is the ultimate meditation on death, life and the existence of God, but it’s not always as heavy as that sounds. Andrew Camarillo is back to break down this film and discuss some of its themes and moments.
