Russian Visionaries
ANDREI TARKOVSKY
THE SACRIFICE
Tarkovsky’s haunting vision of a world
threatened with nuclear annihilation. Made
as he was dying of cancer, THE SACRIFICE
is Tarkovsky’s personal statement, a profoundly moving, redemptive tragedy steeped
in unforgettable imagery and heart-wrenching emotion.

Hard To Be A God
“BEAUTIFUL, BRILLIANT, AND LIKE A MESSAGE
FROM A DIFFERENT TIME.” - Cinemascope
“It’s BREATHTAKING in HD.” - DVD Talk
NOSTALGHIA
Tarkovsky’s brooding late masterpiece is a
darkly poetic vision of exile. Andrei, a Russian
intellectual, becomes obsessed with the Botticelli-like beauty of his translator Eugenia,
as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of
a self-destructive wanderer named Domenico
(Erland Josephson, The Sacrifice). A mystical
and mysterious collision of East and West,
shot with the tactile beauty that only Tarkovsky can provide.
Aleksei Yuryevich German
HARD TO BE A GOD
When legendary Russian auteur Aleksei German died in 2013, he left behind this extraordinary final film, an adaptation of the revered
sci-fi novel by the Strugatsky brothers (authors
of the source novel for Stalker). Taking place on
the planet Arkanar, which is in the midst of
Italy/Russia. 1983. 125 min. Color. Italian and

with the proviso that they must not interfere
in the planet’s political or historical development. Treated by the planet’s natives as a kind of divinity, Don Rumata is both godlike and impotent in the
face of its chaos and brutality.

RUSSIAN ARK
One of the most staggering technical achievements in the history of movies, RUSSIAN
ARK consists of one unbroken 96-minute

of years of Russian history, from encounters

THE SUN

mesmerizing tour of Emperor Hirohito’s final days
in power during the waning moments of WWII.

will and shocking violence.
