In this interview, shot in 2017, Geoff Dyer, author of “Zona: A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room,” discusses how his impatient first viewing of STALKER gave way to a decades-long love for the film.
A pioneer in the field of electronic music, Eduard Artemyev composed scores for three of Andrei Tarkovsky’s films (SOLARIS and THE MIRROR, in addition to STALKER). In this 2000 interview, Artemyev recalls the process of composing for STALKER.
Alexander Knyazhinsky was the second cinematographer associated with STALKER. In this interview, the last he gave before his death in 1996, he recounts his arrival midway through the famously difficult production, and describes his working relationship with director Andrei Tarkovsky.
