Trailer of the Day: The Mirror

The Mirror

The most visually poetic and personal of Tarkovsky’s films, THE MIRROR has no conventional plot. Rather, the film takes the viewer on a chronological journey through the memories—real and imagined—of an unnamed narrator who lies dying of cancer. The seemingly random images create a melancholic montage of the mundane events of our lives through which we search for spirituality and truth. Employing the same actors in several different roles throughout the film and leaving many questions unanswered, Tarkovsky deflected attempts to over-explain the film, urging viewers to accept it as a simple autobiographical reflection. “I should like to ask you all not to be so demanding… It is no more than a straightforward, simple story. It doesn’t have to be made any more understandable.” (108 mins.)

THE MIRROR screens on Friday, August 16 at 9pm and Saturday, August 17 at 6pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
