Andrei Tarkovsky’s masterpeice STALKER, based on the novel Roadside Picnic by the Strugatskiy brothers. (Hard to be a God)
An expedition led by a figure known as the ‘Stalker’ who leads a melancholic writer seeking inspiration and a professor seeking scientific discovery, through ‘Zone’, which has a place within it with the supposed ability to fulfill a person’s innermost desires.
The trio travels through unnerving areas filled with the debris of modern society while engaging in many arguments, facing the fact that the ‘Zone’ itself appears sentient, while their path through it can be sensed but not seen.
In the film, a stalker is a professional guide to the Zone, someone having the ability and desire to cross the border into the dangerous and forbidden place with a specific goal.
