Andrei Tarkovsky's masterpiece first screened at Cannes in 1969, then somewhat disappeared until it was shown here four years later at the 27th Edinburgh International Film Festival. Hailed at the time as one of the greatest films ever made, it deals with artistic freedom, belief, hope and humanity through the life of Andrei Rublev (Anatoly Solonitsyn), a Russian icon-painter of the early 1400s - a particularly turbulent time in Russian history, marked by warring rivals and Tatar invasions.
The screening will be introduced by Jo Clifford.
