Lost lessons of Andrei Tarkovsky #1
Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola will be resuming its public programme on the 6th of December with "Lost lessons of Andrei Tarkovsky #1", the first session devoted to recovering the film classes given by Andrei Tarkovsky in various places in the Soviet Union between 1975 and 1981.
At the first of the sessions that make up the programme, based on the recordings registrated in the Centre for Advanced Cinematography Studies in the Soviet Union in 1977, we will be focusing especially on his film entitled The Mirror (Zérkalo, 1975). The audience will be able to listen to the filmmaker addressing various aspects of the process of creating that film: the origins of the project, the consequences of it being biographical, his relationship with the actors, the writing of the script…
The event will be rounded off by the screening of L’Argent (1983) one of the best-known films in Robert Bresson’s career.
