Summer Film Series
Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
Based on the life of fifteenth-century Russian monk and icon painter Andrei Rublev, the film follows his experiences in a country ravaged by Tartar invaders. The period is vividly recreated, with all the barbaric violence and natural beauty which influenced the painter throughout his life.
"A masterwork of extraordinary depth and spiritual power... (possesses) the kind of highly charged image-making that makes Russian cinema great."
-Jay Carr, The Boston Globe
