Andrei Tarkovsky’s hypnotic sci-fi masterpiece, a visually astonishing journey…

The final Soviet feature by ANDREI TARKOVSKY (Solaris) is a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape, and a rarefied cinematic experience like no other. A hired guide—the Stalker—leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumoured to fulfil one’s most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Tarkovsky created an immersive world with a wealth of material detail and a sense of organic atmosphere. A religious allegory, a reflection of contemporaneous political anxieties, a meditation on film itself – Stalker envelops the viewer by opening up a multitude of possible meanings.

Special Features:

  • New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • New interview with Geoff Dyer, author of Zona: A Book About a Film About a Journey to a Room
