Andrei Tarkovsky: A Cinema Prayer
Directed by Andrei A. Tarkovsky • 2019 • Italy, Russia
The life, art, and inner world of Russian master Andrei Tarkovsky is explored through the filmmaker’s own words and images in this appropriately hushed and reverent tribute to a cinematic titan. Lovingly made by the director’s son, ANDREI TARKOVSKY: A CINEMA PRAYER draws from a wealth of archival materials—rare audio recordings, photographs, film excerpts, and behind-the-scenes footage from the making of masterpieces such as ANDREI RUBLEV and STALKER—to reveal the filmmaker’s profoundly personal thoughts on topics like existence, death, religion, and cinema.
