Tarkovsky/Ruiz: Recent Restorations
dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
This poetic final film from Andrei Tarkovsky (STALKER, SOLARIS) is a moving testament to the power of faith, rapturously filmed (in both color and black and white) by Sven Nykvist, who won a special prize for this effort at the Cannes Film Festival.

A former actor has retired to the remote countryside with his family. Confronted with the threat of nuclear annihilation, he strikes a bargain with a mysterious woman in a desperate bid to save humanity. (1986, 148 min, digital)
