Presented by The Criterion Collection

In a future world that has been seemingly ravaged by war and poverty there exists a myth of hope amongst the people – a forbidden place known as the Zone, the heart of which, if reached, grants one’s innermost desires. Two men, a writer and a professor, hire someone known as a Stalker, a guide who can navigate the treacherous and confounding path that leads them to the centre of the Zone.

With a special introduction from jounralist and broadcaster Danny Leigh.
