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.

After the success of Solaris, Tarkovsky made one of his most personal films in the heavily autobiographical Mirror. Reflecting upon his own childhood alongside the history of the Russian people, Tarkovsky creates a dreamscape layering memories of childhood with dreams and nightmares. A visual insight into Tarkovsky the man and Tarkovsky the artist, the film resonates with directors, placing No.9 in the 2012 Sight and Sound Greatest Films Of All Time Director’s Poll.
