Community Film Picks: Stalker
Fri, May 19, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Bushel is pleased to present a screening of the classic Soviet-era sci-fi film, Stalker (1979), directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, in Russian with English subtitles. See trailer here. Doors at 6:45 pm; screening begins at 7 pm. This program is free to attend. There is seating for 30; attendance is mask optional. Many thanks to Barb and Dave Kopecek for picking this film!

Stalker takes place in an unnamed country at an unspecified time in a fiercely protected post-apocalyptic wasteland known as The Zone. An illegal guide (Aleksandr Kajdanovsky), whose mutant child suggests unspeakable horrors within The Zone, leads a writer (Anatoliy Solonitsyn) and a scientist (Nikolay Grinko) into the heart of the devastation in search of a mythical place known only as The Room. Anyone who enters The Room will supposedly have any of their earthly desires immediately fulfilled. Rotten Tomatoes rating 100%

Barb and Dave Kopecek live and work in the Village of Delhi. Their approach to life can be summed up in the words Ram Dass and Laurie Anderson, respectively: “We’re all just walking each other home,” and “We’re here to have a really, really, really good time.”


Community Film Picks is a once-a-month film night at Bushel taking place on third Fridays at 7 pm. Bushel invites the community to propose films for future screenings. For information please send us an email.
