Russian sci-fi cult classic
screens Sunday at DIVA
A free screening of Andrei Tarkovsky's 1972 science fiction cult classic "Solaris" will be offered at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts, 110 W. Broadway.
The showing is part of the venue's Art House Films and Conversation series, which highlights domestic and foreign films rarely seen on theater screens today.
It chronicles a scientist's travels to the planet of Solaris. While investigating the failure of an earlier mission, he runs into his long-dead wife and realizes the planet has the power to perceive and fulfill human desires.
Sunday's screening will be followed by an audience discussion led by program coordinator Steve Poizat-Newcomb. For information, call 344-3482 or go to www .divamedia.proscenia.net.
