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.

Deep within the Zone, a bleak and devastated forbidden landscape, lies a mysterious room with the power to grant the deepest wishes of those strong enough to make the hazardous journey to get there. Desperate to reach it, a scientist and a writer approach the Stalker, one of the few able to navigate the Zone’s menacing terrain, and they begin a dangerous trek into the unknown. Adapting Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s ‘Roadside Picnic’, Tarkovsky’s second foray into science fiction is a surreal and disturbing vision of the future.
