Andrei Rublev at Doc Films

Tuesday, April 10 at 7pm • 186m (Doc Films)
Andrei Rublev
Andrei Tarkovsky, 1966
If you only see one black and white, nearly three-hour-long film about a medieval Russian icon painter this quarter, make it this one. A meditation on the artist’s response to the atrocities of his time, scenes of shocking brutality meld with flashes of transcendence, as in the famous opening scene when an inventor sets sail in a makeshift hot air balloon, eventually crashing to his death. As the viewer watches, Andrei Rublev suffers warring principalities and Tartar invasions, characterizing medieval Russia. Andrei Tarkovsky crafts a large statement about a society that was kept from seeing his film for years.
