Egoyan’s Calendar is a slowly unfolding story about diasporic fracture. A photographer (Egoyan himself) and his wife, both second-generation Armenian-Canadians, travel to Armenia to take pictures for a commercial calendar. While his wife becomes increasingly immersed in the culture, landscape and people of their shared homeland, the photographer hides himself ever-further behind his viewfinder. Egoyan’s deeply personal film traces the growing alienation between the couple, while the landscapes and historical sites of Armenia bloom before the lens.

Season 8 – Escape

For TANK’s eighth season we present ten films spanning eight decades on one of cinema’s most enduring themes: escape. As our collective future appears increasingly blighted by global crises, cinema offers us a way to rethink and reframe how the search for other worlds might generate new ideas for our own. With films by Kryzsztof Kieślowski, Deniz Gamze Egüven, Andrei Tarkovsky, François Ozon, Cristian Mungiu, Hal Hartley, Atom Egoyan, Jean Vigo, Michael Haneke and Louis Malle – offering stories that cross borders, identities and contexts – this season looks at escape anew, not as resignation from our environment, but as re-engagement with it.

Season 7 – Back to Earth

Humanity’s collective response to the climate crisis has been stifled by an inability to grasp the implications of our histories. Filmmaking’s inherent potential as a time-based medium can offer informative, poetic, or even useful stories that we might draw on as models for coexistence, cooperation and change. Spanning documentary, hard-hitting drama and deadpan comedy, TANK presents ten films selected by the curators at Serpentine Galleries, as part of their multi-year project Back to Earth. Showing films by Agnès Varda, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Gianfranco Rosi, Charlie Chaplin, Luc Jacquet, Bela Tarr, Thomas Vinterberg, Lars von Trier and Babak Jalali.

Season 6 – Ritual

Rituals create meaning; they raise us from the drab monotony of routine – ritual’s less interesting sibling – and build community, intimacy, narrative. We find ritual everywhere in cinema, not only on screen where myths and legends are retold and refreshed, but also off it, in the muted dialogue between maker and viewer. This season, we present 10 films spanning six decades by directors who train their lens on this ancient human practice, who, in doing so, capture the often unsaid behaviours and gestures that make us us. Showing films by Andrei Tarkovsky, Andrew Haigh, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Jean-Luc Godard, Michael Haneke, Agnès Varda, Corneliu Porumboiu, Aki Kaurismäki and Atom Egoyan.

Season 5 – Metamorphosis

Cinema, more than any other other form, makes metamorphosis possible; its superpower, the ability to transform before your eyes. For TANKtv’s fifth season, we look at how directors have taken the theme of metamorphosis to new territories – through original storytelling and formal experimentation – turning individual moments into broader revelations about the human condition. Each express something of humanity's capacity for change, adaption and renewal, as much a picture of our past as it is a blueprint for our future. We are pleased to be showing you 10 films spanning seven decades from the greatest names in cinema, including Andrei Tarkovsky, Wim Wenders, Paolo Sorrentino, Agnès Varda, Béla Tarr, Paweł Pawlikowski, Gabriel Axel, Robert Bresson, Olivier Assayas and Atom Egoyan.

Season 4 – On Verisimilitude

How to recreate the real? From the early pioneers of the Kino Pravda movement in 1920s Russia to the masters of Cinéma Vérité in 1960s Paris, this question has preoccupied directors for decades. For TANKtv’s fourth season, we look at the innovative and radical ways filmmakers have represented reality, suspending our rational faculties and successfully drawing us into their mimetic spells. This season, we are pleased to be showing 12 films spanning seven decades from the greatest names in cinema, including Andrei Tarkovsky, Michael Haneke, Paolo Sorrentino, Agnès Varda, Louis Malle, Roy Andersson, Andrea Arnold, Hal Hartley, Denis Villeneuve, Peter Strickland, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mia Hansen-Løve. Through rich storytelling and technical nuance, these directors bring to light cinema's raw power to move and to persuade, and perhaps, to flicker more truthfully than life itself.

Season 3 – Sculpting in Time

Sculpting in Time describes the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky’s distinctive approach to film-making. Film can freeze, fragment and dissect time like no other medium, as free to mirror time’s inexorable linearity as it is to create new, thrilling forms of associative logic. TANKtv’s third season presents a collection of films that deal with this most important of magical powers: the control over time. We look at films spanning five decades that approach time in profound ways, featuring Abbas Kiarostami, Paolo Sorrentino, Agnès Varda, Yorgos Lanthimos, Roy Andersson and more. From the hyper-real to the arcane, each provides its own portal into what Tarkovsky described as the “inner, moral qualities essentially inherent in time itself”.

Season 2 – Growing Pains

For TANKtv’s second season, twelve visionary directors return to that first great adventure, childhood – the joyful, dizzying precipice on which we slide and tumble, without yet knowing if its bumps and bruises will strengthen or scar. Childhood is knotted into the history of filmmaking. From cinema’s earliest days onwards, it has been mined relentlessly to produce some of the form’s most instinctive and innovative experiments. This steady preoccupation reveals an eye-opening variety of definitions and concerns. Filmmakers return to childhood because while it is universal, it is rarely identical. Whether delving deep into the turbulent experience of our earliest years or tracing their reverberations into adolescence and adulthood, these twelve films journey back to where it all begins.

Season 1 - Beyond Varda

With director Agnès Varda’s death in 2019, the film world lost a leading (and too-often overlooked) member of the Nouvelle Vague, a cinematic innovator and a pioneering voice. Her trademark blend of the deeply personal and highly political seen through a female lens brought new experimentation to filmic form and narrative possibilities, and saw the diminutive Varda cast a long shadow for several generations of filmmakers. This season of TANKtv marks that legacy with 10 films by female directors for whom Varda laid a cinematic foundation.
