A Cinema Prayer profiles one of the greatest directors of all time, Andrey Tarkovsky, the Russian mastermind behind Andrei Rublev and Stalker. Made in a suitably poetic style by the director’s son, the film weaves haunting film clips with rare archive video and contemporary footage of the filming locations, guided by Tarkovsky’s own words taken from various insightful interviews. There are also recordings of his father Arseny’s poetry, a profound influence on the director’s work. Unmissable for Tarkovsky fans, the film also works as a great primer for the uninitiated.
