Andrei Tarkovsky’s semi-autobiographical work makes a rare appearance on the big screen. With a beguiling combination of original material and historical footage, the film explores a dying man’s memories of his past, through the tumult of Russian history and personal family strife. This is a poetic enigma of a film, reflecting the piecemeal nature of human identity and reminiscence.
Dr Duncan Moss, a clinician in the School of Psychology, will introduce the screening and discuss how we attempt to form a mental coherence out of life’s momentary and often random events.
