Anniversary of "Stalker"
Stalker's anniversary

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Andrey Tarkovsky's Stalker, the last film he made in the USSR. Stalker is arguably the most accessible film by Tarkovsky and is routinely included into curricula of international film schools; its influence on global film art can hardly be overstated. Production designer of Stalker Rashit Safiullin will receive the special prize for contribution to Andrey Tarkovsky's cinema at the 13th Zerkalo. Special screenings of Stalker with introduction by Rashit Safiullin will be held in Ivanovo and Yurievets. The festival will also host an exhibition of designs for the film.
