Long acclaimed as a cinematic masterpiece and the benchmark by which all other films are judged, The Seventh Seal is a stunning allegory of a man`s search for the meaning of life. As the Black Death continues to wipe out the population of Europe, knight Antonius Block (Max Von Sydow - The Exorxist, The Magician) returns from the Crusades, disillusioned and worn. When suddenly Death appears before him, he asks for the chance to live, proposing a game of chess to decide his fate. The knight takes his squire, a troupe of travelling players and a deaf and dumb girl under his protection as the game is played out. One by one Death exacts his toll, and it is up to Block to stall his opponent for as long as possible if he is to help save the lives of those he is trying to protect. All the while, the villages and towns about them fall further into ruin and religion takes a strangehold on those desperate for a means of survival.

Val James became the first African-American player in the NHL when he took to the ice with the Buffalo Sabres in 1982, and in 1987 he became the first black player of any nationality to skate for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Born in central Florida, James grew up on Long Island and received his first pair of skates for his 13th birthday. At 16 James left home to play in Canada, where he was the only black person in junior and, often, in the whole town. While popular for his tough play and winning personality, the teenager faced racist taunts at opposing arenas, and the prejudice continued at all levels of the game. In his two NHL stints, James defined himself as a smart team player and opponent, known for his pugilistic skills. Black Ice is the untold story of a trailblazing athlete who endured and overcame discrimination to realize his dreams and become an inspiration for future generations. 1. Language: English.
