Based on the novel Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky, this 1979 science fiction film from Andrei Tarkovsky (Ivan’s Childhood, Solaris, Mirror) is an artistic and psychological exploration of  a man known as the “Stalker” who is on a scientific discovery mission. He takes his clients to a restricted site called the “Zone” that leads to a dangerous and unnerving adventure into their personal desires. This 2K digital restoration of the film was released earlier this year.
