Trailer of the Day: Nostalghia

Nostalghia

Russian master Tarkovsky’s penultimate film, shown here on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, follows Yankovskiy (Andrei Gorchakov), a poet who falls in with a Tuscan madman (Erland Josephson) while traveling through Italy and researching the life of an 18th-century Ukrainian composer who spent his final years there. Yankovskiy, increasingly isolated from those around him, becomes drawn into a complex relationship with this strange man, while at the same time experiencing deep nostalgia for his Russian homeland—much like Tarkovsky himself, exiled from the USSR during this period. NOSTALGHIA, winner of several awards at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival, is a film in which “Tarkovsky evokes the textures of dreams and memories through ravishing monochrome and sepia-toned reveries and flashbacks, while conjuring the hushed and haunted tone of a trance in this late-career masterwork.”—BAMcinématek. (125 mins.)

We’re incredibly excited to be hosting the brand new, 30th anniversary restoration of NOSTALGHIA.  And, yes, it will be projected on 35mm!!!

NOSTALGHIA screens on Friday, August 16 at 6:30pm and Saturday, August 17 at 8:30pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
