The new restoration of Andrei Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev opens on August 24, exclusively at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Tarkovsky’s second film is this multifaceted retelling of the 15th-century icon painter, perhaps Russia’s first great artist, as he faces violence and cruelty and, eventually, a crisis of faith. Initially condemned by Russian authorities, who waited five years before allowing its official release, Tarkovsky’s medieval-set masterpiece endures as a film unlike any other—a richly shot, elliptical meditation on representation and vision, as well as a profound testament to art made under a repressive regime. New digital restoration. A Janus Films release.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
