STALKER

New Digital Restoration!

Friday, October 20 – Sunday, October 22

Double Feature with SOLARIS

(1979) dir Andrei Tarkovsky w/Aleksandr Kaydanovskiy, Anatoliy Solonitsyn, Nikolay Grinko [163 min; DCP]
One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky’s STALKER embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide – the “Stalker” of the title – leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Tarkovsky creates a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere further enriched by this vivid new digital restoration.

“Andrei Tarkovsky’s epic inquiry into freedom and faith presents an arduous journey for the spectator, but conjures up its own mystical universe with majestic conviction.” – Total Film

“Tarkovsky’s finest work.” – The Guardian

“Tarkovsky realizes the allegorical tale with an overwhelming density of visual detail; the riot and clash of textures…form a frenzied vocabulary and lend the film the torrential inner force of Dostoyevskian rhetoric.” – The New Yorker

“A vision of pure magic.” – Time Out
