“Tarkovsky. The 8th Film” is an ELECTRONIC OPERA inspired by the life and works of legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. The production has two main themes:

  • existentialism and creation (the predetermination of fate, fear of the mystical commissioner of the 8th film and of fulfilling that commission, the creative rush of making a new film)
  • attachment to VIRTUAL REALITY (The filmmaker falls in love with his Robot-Nurse, who ends up killing him). Our expectations, hopes and fears in connection with what we are giving over to robots.
