The Film Society had this to say about the exciting re-release:

“This May at the Film Society, experience the mysteries and revelations of Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 science fiction masterpiece in a new digital restoration. Twenty years ago a falling object decimated a provincial Russian town, and those who later went near the crash site — now known as The Zone — disappeared. Access is strictly prohibited, but outsiders can still get in with the help of a “stalker.” Inside The Zone is The Room, within which secret wishes can be granted. Based on the novel “Roadside Picnic” by the Strugatsky brothers, “Stalker” is a visually extraordinary and philosophically provocative fable about the limits of knowledge — personal, scientific, and spiritual. New digital restoration by Mosfilm. A Janus Films release.”
