Known as the best art-house film of all time, and immediately suppressed by the Soviets in 1966, Andrei Tarkovsky’s epic masterpiece is a sweeping medieval tale of Russia’s greatest icon painter. Too experimental, too frightening, too violent, and too politically complicated to be released officially, Andrei Rublev has existed only in shortened, censored versions until the Criterion Collection created this complete 205-minute director’s cut special edition.
The program will include a brief overview of the film’s historical context, a 30 minute intermission, and an informal discussion with complimentary refreshments after the film.
This film is not suitable for anyone under 17.
