Andrei Tarkovsky

Local nameАндрей Тарковский
LocationSainte-Geneviève-des-Bois, France

Andrei Arsenyevich Tarkovsky was a Russian filmmaker, writer, and film theorist. He is widely considered one of the greatest directors in the history of cinema, and one of Russia's most influential filmmakers. His films explored spiritual and metaphysical themes, and are noted for their use of slow long takes and dreamlike visual imagery, as well as their preoccupation with nature and memory.Tarkovsky studied film at Moscow's State Institute of Cinematography, and subsequently directed his first five feature films in the Soviet Union: Ivan's Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror, and Stalker. After years of conflict with Soviet authorities over his work, Tarkovsky left the country in 1979 and made his final two films abroad; Nostalghia and The Sacrifice were produced in Italy and Sweden respectively. In 1986, he also published a book about cinema and art entitled Sculpting in Time. He died of cancer later that year.
