Part of Sculpting Time: Andrei Tarkovsky Season.

A season of films from iconic Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky starting chronologically with Andrei Rublev and ending with his final film The Sacrifice. All seven of his films are presented in brand new digital restorations as part of a nationwide tour.

This epic historical drama charts the life of Andrei Rublev, 15th century icon painter. Rublev lives in a world consumed by feudal violence and human degradation, and the turmoil around him makes him lose the will to speak. After many years of silent travelling around medieval Russia, he meets a young boy who has taken charge of the construction of a large silver bell, and in him discovers the inspiration to speak again. Immediately suppressed upon release by the regime, Andrei Rublev is considered Tarkovsky’s first masterpiece.
