  • Deep Focus: Andrei Tarkovsky

    Learning & Outreach

    Get into the Zone with our latest Deep Focus” event exploring the work of one of the world’s foremost filmmakers. Deep Focus” is an interactive lecture series presented by Learning & Outreach at The Cinematheque. In this edition, you will learn how Tarkovsky so effectively mirrors the worst and best (but mostly worst) of humanity. Host Chelsea Birks will guide participants through important questions such as: What made Tarkovsky’s films resonate with international audiences? Which filmmakers inspired Tarkovsky, and who is inspired by him? Why, why, why such long takes, and … was it all a dream? Is your wife even real? Participants will then apply their new analytical skills to a screening of the newly restored Nostalghia (1983) followed by a (sure to be philosophical) discussion.

    Standard ticket rates apply for this Deep Focus” lecture and screening. Total event time will be 3.5 hours, including lecture, screening, discussion, and short breaks.
