Experience the mysteries and revelations of Andrei Tarkovsky’s (Solaris) 1979 science fiction masterpiece in a new digital restoration! Almost 40 years after its creation, Stalker looks profoundly prophetic—as well as metaphysically poetic. Twenty years ago, a falling object decimated a provincial Russian town, and those who later went near the crash site— now known as The Zone disappeared. Access is strictly prohibited, but outsiders can still get in with the help of a “stalker.” Inside The Zone is The Room, within which secret wishes can be granted. Based on the novel Roadside Picnic by the Strugatsky Brothers, Stalker is a visually extraordinary and philosophically provocative fable about the limits of knowledge—personal, scientific, and spiritual.
