still from Solaris (Andrei Tarkovsky, SU 1972)

Solaris

Andrei Tarkovski / SUHH, 1972 / 167 min.

Solaris is Tarkovsky’s venture into the genre of science fiction, though there are no stunning galactic battles to be witnessed. Instead, the film can be seen as a meditation on and an existential drama about love and humanity. A psychologist is sent to a space station to investigate a number of extraordinary events. New restoration.

Andrei Tarkovsky

With associative films rich in imagery, such as Andrei Rublev (1966), Solaris (1972), The Mirror (1974) and especially Stalker (1979), Andrei Tarkovsky (1932‒1986) made his name as a leading innovator of the language of cinema. This autumn, Eye presents an exhibition and film programme devoted to the celebrated filmmaker and mystic, focusing specifically on Tarkovsky’s quest for existential truth.
