Cinema has never seen anything like the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, either before or since. The Soviet filmmaker, whose early films include Ivan's Childhood, Andrei Rublev and Solaris, brought a magical, surreal touch to his work that was envied and admired by contemporaries in the late '60s and '70s. His semi-autobiographical and dream-like feature Mirror follows the life of a young man named Alexei through his childhood, adolescence and middle-age in the Pre- to Post-War eras; think Boyhood, but in a non-chronological structure, poetic voice-overs, avant garde imagery and an unpredictable, flowy narrative. Mirror screens tonight as part of a month-long retrospective of the auteur's most seminal work at Hibbleton Gallery, where for only a small donation and some time, you can check out all the films and engage in some stimulating conversation after each screening.
