THE BIGGER PICTURE: STALKER

Andrei Tarkovsky

The first in our series where we present a revered film from world cinema history with an introduction from a filmmaker, film critic or academic, who will aim to justify its importance in the canon and identify its resonance for modern audiences, will see The Irish Times’ Film Critic Donald Clarke introduce Andrei Tarkovsky’s visionary work, Stalker.

This hugely influential film is set in some future world where the Stalker of the title takes two clients, a disillusioned writer looking for inspiration and a scientist searching for a breakthrough, on a journey intended to fulfil the deepest wishes.
