Chris Marker has crafted a cinematic psalm to Andrei Tarkovsky in this absorbing documentary on the aesthetics, evocations, and sensibilities of one of the greatest cinema stylists of all time. Marker’s cinema essay transports the viewer into Tarkovsky’s films and uses two video shoots—a visit to the settings of The Sacrifice (screening January 12 and 28), and a video edited on Tarkovsky’s deathbed as a testimony to his work.

The Train Rolls On
(Le train en marche)

Chris Marker, France, 1971

Marker interviews Alexander Medvedkin, intercuts materials from the Soviet director’s “cine-train,” and provides his own inimitable commentary for a thoughtful study of one of the cinema’s great agitational filmmakers. “A little masterpiece” (Richard Roud).
