Tehelka - - ART - AB­HI­NAV

I saw An­drei Tarkovsky’s Rus­sian film An­drei Rublev 20 years ago and still re­mem­ber what the pro­tag­o­nist stood for. An­drei was a monk who worked on mak­ing a cathe­dral. But he was more than just a monk. He was a seeker of spir­i­tu­al­ity through prayer and through art. Thus, he was torn be­tween de­cid­ing which was the right path. The strug­gle be­tween faith and art res­onated with me so in­tensely that the screen be­came a mir­ror and I be­came one with the mo­ment.
