Each cut is an event…

January 14, 2010

Zerkalo still

“Each cut is an event, a moment not simply to collide images but also to layer the collage of the film: picture and sound, married and abutted, proffering new sights, new landscapes, new emotions and new realities in light.” – Ryland Walker Knight in ReverseShot, writing on Zerkalo [The Mirror].

Zerkalo [The Mirror] is Andrei Tarkovsky’s classic memoir, originally released in 1975. It is playing at our Harris Theater Jan 18-21, 2010 only.

The late Russian director Tarkovsky’s beautiful, intelligent films are legendary and The Mirror was reportedly a source of inspiration for Lars Van Trier’s Antichrist (opening January 22).
