RUSS 154 - The Cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky (in English)

Semester Offered: Spring
0.5 unit(s)
The haunting impression produced by Tarkosvky’s films is aptly summarized by Ingmar Bergman: “My discovery of Tarkovsky’s first film was like a miracle. Suddenly, I found myself standing at the door of a room the keys of which had, until then, never been given to me. Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” The course examines the work of the Russian director against the background of various “new waves” in European filmmaking, concentrating on Tarkovsky’s unique blend of poetic and philosophical cinema that, following the great Russian literary tradition, can be described as metaphysical realism. Dan Ungurianu.

Taught in English. Second six-week course.
