Talking Tarkovsky + De jeugd van Ivan
What does Andrei Tarkovsky’s work mean to a younger generation? In this talk show programme maker Stefan Schoorl explores the question with young filmmakers on the basis of clips from his films. There are also poetical and musical performances in the spirit of the Russian film artist. Among the guests this evening are Stijn Bouma (director) and Helena Hoogenkamp (writer/poet). Includes a screening of Ivan's Childhood on 35mm (with Dutch subtitles).

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.
