Tarkovsky's Letters, Audio Records and Photos to be Put up for Auction in London
Andrei Tarkovsky

The archive of Andrei Tarkovsky’s private correspondence will be put up for the Sotheby's auction in London on November 28. 

      The preliminary estimate of the famous film director’s audio recordings, photos and scenarios varies from 80 to 100 thousand pounds sterling.

      According to the head of the Sotheby's department for books and manuscripts, the specified lots are most likely the only materials associated with the name of the well-known director that will appear in the auction market in the near future.

      The collection is put up for sale by Olga Sokurova, a film expert and Tarkovsky's student. She was also the coauthor of the book Sculpting In Time, in which the director dwells upon his films, as well as cinema and art in general.

      The archive concerns both personal and professional life of the film director. His letter addressed to Leonid Brezhnev, is one of the most interesting lots of the forthcoming auction. Tarkovsky is asking him in the letter to allow him working in the USSR and permit demonstration of his banned films in his motherland.
