MSU Film Collective: STALKER @ B122 Wells Hall

MSU Film Collective: STALKER @ B122 Wells Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Presented by Yelena Kalinsky

Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi masterpiece, based loosely on the Strugatsky brothers’ novel Roadside Picnic, takes place in a dystopian world where a mysterious Zone is sealed off by the government and is said to grant one’s deepest unconscious wish. Unable to resist the Zone’s pull, the Stalker of the title leads a washed-up writer and a cynical scientist on a spiritual and philosophical quest to the heart of the Zone. The illusion of continuous action through the constantly shifting landscape and strange, nondiegetic sound cast a seductive spell while ultimately frustrating any single interpretation.

Free and open to the public.

The collection presented here is a small sample of the many photographs comprising the text Black in White America published by the J. Paul Getty Museum originally in 1968 and recently reprinted in 2010. These photographs were printed with special permission from the family of Leonard Freed. The text featured on the walls of the gallery is from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ 2015 bookBetween the World and Me published by Spiegel & Grau, NY.
