CINE LUMIERE IN COLLABORATION WITH KINO KINO

PRESENT

TARKOVSKY RETROSPECTIVE

13 ­ 25 January
at Ciné lumière

Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky belongs to that handful of filmmakers
(Dreyer, Bresson, Vigo) who, with a small concentrated body of work,
created
a universe. His films typically combine a concern with spiritual and
metaphysical themes with images of often breath-taking beauty, and
together
can be considered among the most compelling and mysterious of all cinema.

Ciné lumière¹s retrospective includes all of Tarkovsky¹s feature-length
films, plus his graduation project at Moscow¹s VGIK film school, The
Steamroller and the Violin. Selected screenings will be introduced by Sean

Martin, author of the recent ŒPocket Essentials¹ monograph on Tarkovsky,
Vertigo film critic James Norton, film academic Dr Jeremy Hicks (Queen
Mary,
University of London), and Layla Alexander-Garrett, Tarkovsky¹s
interpreter
on The Sacrifice.

Also included in the season is Chris Marker¹s documentary on Tarkovsky and

his work, One day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevitch, and the animated
short
Tale of Tales, showing in a double bill with Mirror. Like Tarkovsky¹s
film,
Tale of Tales uses imagery from the director¹s own childhood memories,
and,
in its structure, attempts to reproduce on screen the workings of memory,

whereby images are called up by association, rather than in chronological

order. Considered the masterpiece of influential Russian animator Yuri
Norstein, the film has been acclaimed as the greatest animated film of all

time. Claire Kitson, author of Yuri Norstein and Tale of Tales: An
Animator¹s Journey, and former commissioning editor for animation at
Channel
4, will be present to introduce the 20 January screening.
