"Tarkovsky's River" is about a journey into landscape, into the deep heart of a place, where the river is as wide as a sea, where skies are vast and where time stands still. It is about a journey into memory, not a personal memory but a collective one, holding within it a sense of the interconnectedness of man and the natural world. The landscape is old, lived in, sentient - yet never pretty, never tamed.

This is the landscape of Andrei Tarkovsky's vision. It is a journey on the upper Volga to Yureyvets, the little town where Tarkovsky spent his childhood.
