Cemetery Cinema: The Seventh Seal & Harold and Maude
Join us for a movie night in Mount Auburn Cemetery where we will confront mortality with Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal”, and celebrate life with Hal Ashby’s “Harold and Maude”.
Harold and Maude
With the idiosyncratic American fable Harold and Maude, countercultural director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era.
Working from a script by Colin Higgins, Ashby tells the story of the emotional and romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian. Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude features memorable set pieces and a remarkable soundtrack by Cat Stevens.
