Andrei Tarkovskys Son to Film Documentary about his Father
March 28, 2018 14:04


 Andrei Tarkovsky Jr, the son of Soviet film director Andrei Tarkovsky Sr (1932-1986) and the head of the Tarkovsky International Institute is working on a documentary about his father. The filmmaker told reporters about the project at the festival dedicated to his father and now running in Buenos Aires.
As he said to a TASS correspondent, the film is expected to be released next year.
“I'm starting to work on a documentary film dedicated to my father's creativity and based on audio recordings of film lectures and conferences that were held in Russia mainly”,- the director's son said.
According to Andrei Tarkovsky Jr., the film will be a kind of “biographical self-portrait”.
“This will not be a journalistic interview, but a monologue and narration about himself, of course. The master himself will be speaking on screen. His voice and footage featuring him have been taken from the archive of shooting on the movie set. There will be frames from his films and documents from the archives, with video episodes of the places where he lived, worked, and filmed. The internal monologue will be accompanied with a consistent chronicle and close-ups against a musical background”, - said Andrei Tarkovsky Jr, who came to Buenos Aires to attend the Tarkovsky festival here.
According to him, tentatively the documentary film will be ready by the end of this year and released in 2019.
“It all depends on our producers, but I think this will most likely be the Cannes next year”, - Tarkovsky Jr. said.

The Tarkovsky Festival
The program of the festival, which kicked off in Buenos Aires on March 13, includes the screening of Tarkovsky’s films, as well as concerts, lectures and a photo exhibition.
At the festival, Andrei Tarkovsky Jr. presented an entire exposition of his father's photos. These are polaroid pictures, which have not been published anywhere before.
"The most valuable thing here is the polaroids, the only type of pictures that Tarkovsky took. They are very valuable materials, being the originals that are for the first time here in Argentina”, - Andrei Tarkovsky Jr. pointed out.
"Despite the technical simplicity of the device, it is his look and his vision that make them amazing. They are unique in a particular sense”, - he added. In total, the exposition includes 80 polaroid photos taken by Andrei Tarkovsky Sr.

Tarkovsky Film Scripts Published in Spanish
Besides, in the framework of the festival, there was a presentation of the book with Tarkovsky’s film scripts in Spanish, published by the Mardulce Publishing House, Argentina.
“This is the first translation into Spanish. A very interesting collection, it includes all the scripts of his films plus three scenarios of the films that he never implemented: “Sardor”, “Hoffmannian”, and “Bright Wind””, - Andrei Tarkovsky Jr. said after his lecture that gathered a full hall of fans of the creative work of the director.
“It's amazing. I did not think there would be so many people. Some came even from Patagonia”, - he commented.
"Wherever I have been, my father's work is always very popular around the world. Such is the amazing ability of his films to touch the hearts of people of different nations and cultures”, - the director's son summed up.
The festival will come to an end on April 24. It is organized by Argentine film director Daniel Rosenfeld, his colleague Mariano Nante and writer Bernard Nantes.
