Chris Marker has crafted a cinematic psalm to Andrei Tarkovsky in this absorbing documentary on the aesthetics, evocations, and sensibilities of one of the greatest cinema stylists of all time. Marker’s cinema essay transports the viewer into Tarkovsky’s films and uses two video shoots—a visit to the settings of The Sacrifice (screening January 12 and 28), and a video edited on Tarkovsky’s deathbed as a testimony to his work.
