About Andrei Rublev

Year Released:
Andrei Rublev presents Russia’s most venerated icon painter through a series of historically imagined and visually stunning vignettes. Set in a period of war, famine, and foreign occupation, the film takes the viewer into a world of enchantment, despair, violence, and hope that seems to be both scripted by providence and dependent on the sheer force of human will. Banned in the Soviet Union upon its initial release, Andrei Rublev is now considered a masterpiece of Soviet and world cinema. (35mm presentation)

Sponsored by IU’s Russian and East European Institute, Departments of Slavic Languages and Literatures, Religious Studies and History, and IU Cinema.
