For 25 years, he’d been one of the most controversial and misunderstood figures of Soviet cinema. He had made only seven films, all distinguished by their poetic, visionary style and by their intensely personal subject matter…Tarkovsky himself often protested that his films should simply be experienced like a piece of music and not interpreted literally.

BBC’s Arena, a TV series praised by Werner Herzog as “the oasis in the sea of insanity that is television,” presents a memorable personal portrait of film director Andrei Tarkovsky. The 52 minute documentary offers a rare glimpse into his history and each of his works while shedding light on his ideas on the art of cinema and his philosophical thoughts on life and humanity. Tarkovsky once noted, For me, cinema is simply an original way to create a new universe. Explore the cinematic universe of Andrei Tarkovsky with this unforgettable window into one of the most influential and renowned filmmakers.

The question becomes, are you giving them something to make them a little happier, or are you putting in something that is inherently true to the material? Are people behaving the way we all really behave, or are they behaving the way we would like them to behave?…The questions are always, is it true? Is it interesting? To worry about those mandatory scenes that some people think make a picture is often just pandering to some conception of an audience. Some films try to outguess an audience. They try to ingratiate themselves, and it’s not something you really have to do. Certainly audiences have flocked to see films that are not essentially true, but I don’t think this prevents them from responding to the truth.
