Praying Through Cinema

A beautiful video about the films and spirituality of Andrei Tarkovsky.

My love for Russian literature has led me to look into other forms of Russian expression like art and film. This short video is an excellent example of how spirituality and art are intimately intertwined.

If you would like to learn more about prayer in the Russian tradition, check out The Way of the Pilgrim, a classic of Orthodox spirituailty.

The next Tarkovsky film I would like to see is about the artist behind this icon, Andrei Rublev. The film is available on YouTube with English subtitles.
