Film - Feature | September 9 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Back by popular demand! A sci-fi tale that unwinds in the environs of the soul takes the form of a nightmarish quest for nothing less than truth itself. In a plot employing the outlines of a novel by Soviet authors Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, who also wrote the screenplay, a writer and a scientist follow a shaven-headed “stalker” into forbidden territory, a dangerous wilderness known as the Zone. Tarkovsky forces—or perhaps allows—reality to yield abstract images of startling originality, and his vision of landscape bathed in eerie sepia hues is nothing less than mystical.
