New Digital Restoration!
USSR, West Germany | 1979 | Andrei Tarkovsky
Tarkovsky’s mesmerizing epic is a classic of spiritual cinema—and one of the great modern movies. Set in a nameless police state in some post-apocalyptic future, the film follows a skinhead guide with special powers (a “stalker”) as he leads a writer and a scientist into a fenced-off, forbidden region, known as the Zone, that is part primeval forest, part post-industrial wasteland. The three men journey toward the Zone’s mysterious inner sanctum, where one’s deepest desires are said to come true. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 161 min.
Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. This program supported by the Charles Lang Bergengren Memorial Film Fund.
