ThemeMemento mori and the Danse Macabre During the height of the black death the rich would shutter themselves away., party drink, and dance. These parties were common during this time because many believed if they were fated to die anyway they may as well live in the moment. This is emphasized in the Decameron.

Memento mori is the idea of remembering the eventuality of death therefore enjoy life. The theme was prevalent in artwork and many activities throughout the time period.

The Seventh Seal (1957)

When disillusioned Swedish knight Antonius Block (Max von Sydow) returns home from the Crusades to find his country in the grips of the Black Death, he challenges Death (Bengt Ekerot) to a chess match for his life. Tormented by the belief that God does not exist, Block sets off on a journey, meeting up with traveling players Jof (Nils Poppe) and his wife, Mia (Bibi Andersson), and becoming determined to evade Death long enough to commit one redemptive act while he still lives.

Start time: 7pm we will have coinciding discord chat during the film’s showing.
