Directed By Andrei Tarkovsky

Crew
Directed by Michal Leszczylowski


Filmmaker Michal Leszcylowski was editor for Andrei Tarkovsky's last film, The Sacrifice. During the time they spent together, their relationship grew into an enduring friendship. Directed By Andrei Tarkovsky is an homage, a fluid and captivating documentary that presents the brooding as well as the more playful side of a genius.

According to Micahl Leszcylowski, "Joseph Conrad wrote that at the outset of every work of art there is the will to isolate a moment out of the merciless flow of life and make it accessible to others. The time I spent with Andrei Tarkovsky while working on The Sacrifice will vanish and fade as memories always do... Maybe I fear such a loss in the labyrinth of recollection or maybe it is simply my affection for him that drives me... Andrei opened certain doors for me and let me in. The time I spent in the world of his ideas, thoughts and feelings enriched me... I felt obligated to share with you the time that passed."
