Beginning a selection of Tarkovsky double bills
, Close-Up present four pairings of the Russian master’s films with a selection of masterpieces drawn from Second Run’s catalogue that echo and contrast the auteur’s themes and philosophy – often in frequently surprising ways. Beginning this Saturday 4th December with a double bill of Miklós Jancsó's MY WAY HOME (1964) and Tarkovsky's IVAN'S CHILDHOOD (1962).
Much like Tarkovsky’s own extraordinary World War II film, My Way Home delves into the devastating psychological effects of conflict on the young, to create a deeply moving and poetic view of life during wartime. Close-Up Cinema, Sunday 4th December from 6pm
