The list of filmmakers and artists who have been inspired by Tarkovsky goes on and marks Tarkovsky’s status as one of the great directors in film history.
Tarkovsky directed seven feature films and was a filmmaker with outspoken ideas about film and art. He referred to the spiritual power of classical paintings and poetry. In addition to the work of directors he admired, such as Ingmar Bergman and Robert Bresson, Tarkovsky considered the silent film classic Earth , by Soviet film maker Aleksandr Dovzhenko, the pinnacle of film art. Tarkovsky’s films, his sources of inspiration and Tarkovsky’s influence on contemporary filmmakers and artists, have been incorporated into a program that spans 90 years of film history, accompanying the exhibition in Eye.
