Friday Film (on a Sunday): Andrei Rublev
May 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Friday Films would like to invite you to a screening of Andrei Rublev, an expansive black and white drama, set against the bleak background of 15th century Russia. This tour-de-force reflects on the life of revered religious icon painter Andrei Rublev and focuses on such themes as artistic freedom, religion, political ambiguity, autodidacticism, and the making of art under a repressive regime. The film itself is divided into seven episodes (The Jester, Theophanes, The Holiday, The Last Judgment, The Raid, Love and The Bell), which either parallel his life or represent episodic transitions in his life, with a prologue and an epilogue only loosely related to the main film.
Episodes show the artist drifting from place to place in a tumultuous time, gaining a reputation for his art, witnessing a brutal battle, and unintentionally becoming involved, where after he takes a vow of silence and spends time away from his creative work. Andrei eventually begins to ease his troubled soul and takes steps towards becoming a painter once again.
This film is sure to challenge and enthrall. All are welcome. If you have any questions about the logistics of the
film, please contact Sharon Rovansek. If you have any questions about the plot, meaning or production of the
film, contact Sandy Schwartz
