Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
106 minutes, 35mm
"Tarkovsky’s visually-sumptuous fourth feature is the great director’s most personal and poetic (and Proustian) film. The Mirror offers an idiosyncratic history of 20th century Russia, in the form of a poet’s fragmented reflections on three generations of his family.” This presentation is set to be a real treat and couldn’t be better timed, as I’ve been on a bit of a Tarkovsky kick of late and this is a film I have yet to see. Check it out this weekend if you’re in Vancouver.
