Event description: 

Solaris (1972)
Introduced by Dustin Gavin

Solaris, Tarkóvski’s mystifying drama of grief and memory, is a science fiction film that wholly engages both inner and outer space. In it Tarkóvski takes a step away from the standard science fiction film and creates a divine conversation of reality, humanity, and “contact” with other forms of intelligence.


Presented with Films at the Whitney, the program in American Studies, the department of religious studies, the Film Studies Program, and the Center for the Study of Material and Visual Cultures of Religion
