July 14

July 14 is the birthdate of Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman, who directed more than 60 films and documentaries, most of which he also wrote. “The Seventh Seal” (1957), the tale of a medieval knight confronting Death and the silence of God, is generally regarded as his masterpiece and a classic of world cinema. Key scenes have become iconic (through both parodies and homages), including the final “danse macabre” in which the knight and his followers are led away by Death. Bergman worked with Sven Nykvist, regarded as the greatest of all cinematographers.
