Event Description

Commissioned to paint the interior of the Vladimir cathedral, a great artist travels across Russia, witnessing cruelty, brutality and narrow-mindedness, and arrives at his destination in a crisis of faith. He retreats into silence, emerging only after the appearance of a spirited young artist. Tarkovsky’s controversial epic, banned and then mercilessly edited by Russian authorities, exists in its own cinematic plane, providing a startlingly visual, otherworldly vision of the challenges faced by a creative spirit. Presented by St. John's College.
