À la lecture du roman de Stanisław Lem, j’étais envahi non pas par son sujet fantastique, mais par une appréciation réaliste des problèmes archicompliqués qui vont se poser pour l’homme à la suite des progrès techniques et scientifiques… Comment rester un homme dans une situation inhumaine?
Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky

Considered one of the greatest Soviet directors, Andrei Tarkovsky directed seven feature films that place him among the masters of cinema. Awarded the Golden Lion at the 1962 Venice Film Festival, his first film, Ivan's Childhood, is seen as a sign of renewal in Soviet cinema. However, he immediately distanced himself from any pro-Soviet political considerations with his next film, Andrei Rublev (1966), which led to censorship for his subsequent films. Unable to obtain funding from Soviet authorities, he left the USSR at the end of the 1970s to make his last two films, Nostalghia (1983) and The Sacrifice (1986), for which he received the Grand Prix at Cannes. His demanding and mystical work explores many themes such as childhood, Russian history, everyday life, as well as the connection to the land and to natural elements. His films, including Stalker (1979) and The Mirror (1975), are considered classics.
