Andrey Tarkovsky. A Cinema Prayer

Online Event
A serious-looking man rests his head on his hand
Dates and times

5 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

A Cinema Prayer profiles one of the greatest directors of all time, Andrey Tarkovsky, the Russian mastermind behind Andrei Rublev and Stalker. Made in a suitably poetic style by the director’s son, the film weaves haunting film clips with rare archive video and contemporary footage of the filming locations, guided by Tarkovsky’s own words taken from various insightful interviews. There are also recordings of his father Arseny’s poetry, a profound influence on the director’s work. Unmissable for Tarkovsky fans, the film also works as a great primer for the uninitiated. (Russian with subtitles)
Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2020's selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.
