50th Anniversary screening!
Ground control has been receiving mysterious transmissions from the three remaining residents of the Solaris space station. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin is dispatched to investigate, he experiences the same strange phenomena that afflict the Solaris crew, sending him on a voyage into the darkest recesses of his consciousness. With Solaris, the legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky created a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth, and humanity itself.
“The film has a hypnotic pull, drawing the viewer deeper and deeper into its enigmatic adventure by crafting a world all its own.” – Los Angeles Times
“Originally hailed as the Soviet 2001, Tarkovsky’s sci-fi epic is actually something closer to Vertigo—a strange and beautiful meditation on memory, simulation, and lost love.” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice
