Andrei Rublev is Fredericka Hunter’s favorite film. Next Tuesday at 6:00 pm there will be a screening of the 1969 film epic by Andrei Tarkovsky at the MFAH.  Tarkovsky portrays fifteenth-century icon painter Andrei Rublev (Anatoli Solonitsyn) as a mute visionary, who, after years of seeing his country divided by the Tartars, finally rediscovers the will to speak. Black and white, 3 hours long, cruel and beautiful.
