This is a Meetup group for people who love the cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky. Also the cinematography of Vadim Yusov and Sven Nykvist. It is for those who see the same Tarkovsky films over and over, and it gets better and better each time. We will see screenings of films by directors who influenced or were influenced by Tarkovsky. We will meet before or after the screenings to discuss the artistic, political, and philosophical context and implications of his cinema.
We will also go to museums to see works of art by painters who inspired Tarkovsky, such as by Rembrandt and Breughel. Also to areas of mystical natural or unnatural beauty, similar to those that inspired him.
“To me, Tarkovsky is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” – Director Ingmar Bergman
