8/14/2016 / 1:30pm

106 minutes / Not rated
Russian with English subtitles

Acclaimed master of Soviet cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky uses his own coming-of-age experiences, himself "mirror"-ed, to convey the mood and action that dominated a country ravaged by war. Through a fascinating two-tiered time frame, the director blends his own harsh childhood with an adult life that is troubled and broken. The Mirror becomes a stream-of-consciousness, with nostalgic visions of childhood mixed with slow-motion dream sequences and stark WW II newsreels.

This film presented as part of the exhibition Glenn Brown and the Artist's Choice Film Series.

Location Information:
Levitt Auditorium
