Fri, Jul 17 / 7 pm

1976, Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
With Alisa Freyndlikh, Aleksandr Kaydanovskiy and Anatoliy Solonitsyn
163 min, 35 mm

Director Andrei Tarkovsky’s second foray into the science fiction genre, Stalker follows the journey of a shadowy guide as he leads a writer and professor into a site known only as the “zone.” As legend has it, at the center of the “zone” is a room with the power to fulfill a person’s innermost dreams.

As the trio traverses the fantastic world of the “zone,” which seems to shift in reaction to their endeavors as if it has a mind of its own, the effects of their intentions for entering the space begin to engulf them. Loosely based on the novel Roadside Picnic by the Soviet-Russian Strugatsky Brothers, Stalker has grown to become an iconic piece of Russian film history, inspiring artists, writers and filmmakers around the globe.
