A haunting work of remarkable resonance by the great Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, Stalker offers an epic vision that exemplifies what the director called a "poetic, philosophical, and spiritual cinema."

The Stalker is the only man who can lead people through an apocalyptic wasteland into a quarantined territory known as The Zone, an area with the potential to offer knowledge of a person’s secret hopes and desires. (160 mins., 35mm)
