"One of the world's most visionary and influential directors, Andrei TARKOVSKI - 'Tarkovsky is the Greatest.' (© Ingmar Bergman); 'For me, Tarkovsky is God' (© Lars von Trier) - made seven feature films until his death. He recorded his thoughts on life, art and cinema in his book 'The Sealed Time', first published in German in 1985.
In 'Die versiegelte Zeit. Gedanken zur Kunst, zur Ästhetik und Poetik des Films' ('The Sealed Time. Thoughts on Art, Aesthetics and Poetics of Film', with a foreword by Dominik Graf) Andrei TARKOVKSI writes about directing, the role of the actor and the audience, about camera, music, montage and screenplay. He edited the texts in a tireless process of improving and changing that lasted until a few weeks before his death. The new edition corresponds to the last hand edition, which lists the texts for the first time in their finality desired by the author.
