About the Film:

Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. Black and White.183 min. Russian with English subtitles.

Experience a new restoration of Andrei Tarkovsky’s second feature, a towering epic that took him years to complete in which Tarkovsky waded deep into the past and emerged with a visionary masterwork. Threading together several self-contained episodes, the filmmaker traces the renowned icon painter Andrei Rublev through the harsh realities of 15-century Russian life. Tarkovsky vividly conjures the dark and otherworldly atmosphere of the age: a primitive hot-air balloon takes to the sky, snow falls inside an unfinished church, naked pagans celebrate the midsummer solstice, a young man oversees the casting of a gigantic bell. Appearing here in Tarkovsky’s preferred 183-minute cut, as well as the version that was originally censored by Soviet authorities, Andrei Rublev is an arresting meditation on art, faith, and endurance—and a powerful reflection on expressive constraints in the director’s own time.
