24 September – Tarkovsky & Tarkovsky

Film specialist and IFFR programmer Edwin Carels talks about the oeuvre of Andrei Tarkovsky. A surprising element is that Tarkovsky’s films – virtually all of them classics – are indebted to the work of Tarkovsky’s father, the poet and translator Arseny Tarkovsky. Carels argues that Arseny’s poems ‘already anticipate what his son would later try to achieve with the medium of film’.

The lecture is followed by the screening ofNostalghia.
