AboutTo accompany Sam Falls' solo exhibition the Zabludowicz Collection screens a selection of films by Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky.
Sun 27 July, 7pm
Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
Running time: 120 mins. approx.
Tarkovsky's unforgettably haunting film, his first to be made outside Russia, explores the melancholy of the expatriate through the film's protagonist, Gorchakov (Oleg Yankovsky), a Russian poet researching in Italy. Arriving at a Tuscan village spa with his beautiful Italian interpreter, Gorchakov is visited by memories of Russia and of his wife and children, and encounters the local mystic, who sets him a challenging task. As in all of Tarkovsky's films, nature and the elements of fire and water, music, painting and poetry, and the contrast of black and white and colour photography, play a major role.
