Considered by many to be one of if not the most important Russian film-makers of the 20th Century Andrei Tarkovsky was a filmic visionary whose body of work stands as a realisation of his notion of ‘sculpting in time’.
This concept was characterised by extremely long takes and shots of indescribable beauty which simultaneously exposed the human condition and recognised the magnificent in the ordinary. Tarkovsky’s unrivalled ability to capture what many take for granted amidst a creatively stifling political environment positioned him as one of the strongest advocates of Russian independent cinema.
This set contains five of Tarkovsky’s most renowned films as well as the documentary ‘Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky’. Includes: Andrei Rublev (1969) Solaris (1972) The Mirror (1975) Stalker (1979). Ivan’s Childhood (1962)
