The Mirror

When: Sat., Aug. 18, 8-9:45 p.m. 2018

Shards of memories—dreams of an individual, collective nightmares—do not merely haunt Tarkovsky's most challenging work, they are the film, which invents, as Ingmar Bergman noted, “a new language, true to the nature of film . . . life as a dream.” Ostensibly an autobiographical portrait, The Mirror also offers a crash course in twentieth-century history, as stock footage of world upheavals—the Spanish Civil War, the Siege of Leningrad, the Cultural Revolution—intertwine with images of childhood: a field, a fire in a rainstorm, a father's voice, a mother (played by various actresses, including Tarkovsky’s own mother).
