About “Stalker”
—————-
One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker (1979) embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide—the “Stalker” of the title—leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere further enriched by this vivid new digital restoration. At once a religious allegory, a reflection of contemporary political anxieties, and a meditation on film itself—among many other interpretations—Stalker envelops the viewer by opening up a multitude of possible meanings.

Kenia at Backstage Bar at Theater Square @ Backstage Bar at Theater Square
Dec 5 @ 5:00 pm

Kenia has been characterized by many as one of the most excitingly unique performers you can hear today. Born in the exotic city of Rio de Janeiro, she reflects the pulse and intensity of her native Brazil through diversified style. Her deep tone and excellent choice of repertoire have been cited by Dana Black, of the Daily News, New York, as a “sure sign of expertise”. Jazztimes magazine has described her as “a wonderfully expressive vocal instrument that throbs with sultry intensity, it’s low key, yet ultra bright”. Kenia will be featured during the month of April, National Jazz Appreciation Month, singing the songs of great Brazilian composers, Jobim, Gil and many others
