The Sacrifice is the final film in the Sculpting Time season at QUAD in Derby.

Andrei Tarkovsky’s final film, from 1986, screens from Sunday, August 28 – Tuesday, August 30. The Sacrifice (12A) explores a deeply personal statement on humanity’s self-destruction and the end of the world.

Starting on the precipice of World War III, the story is about Alexander, a journalist and former actor and philosopher who, on the outbreak of war, turns to God and offers himself up as a sacrifice to change the world and stop the war. The Sacrifice is a heart-breaking but ultimately reaffirming film.

Ticket prices are £8.20 or £7 concessions. Tickets can be bought from QUAD box office on 01332 290606 or online http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/whats-on/film.aspx
