B. Tarkovsky enrolled at a film school in Moscow in 1954. This was an exciting period to be a film stu in Russia. The 50s were a time when Russian society began to be more open towards foreign < music and literature. Tarkovsky was interested in a wide variety of film styles, from Japanese Fib Those of the great Swedish director, Ingmar Bergman.

C. The first full-length film Tarkovsky made was Ivans Childhood in 1962, not long after gradui The film was met with international acclaim and went on to win the Golden Lion prize at that ] Venice Film Festival. Throughout his career, Tarkovsky would continue to win prizes and the admii of both critics and cinema fans the world over.

A director, Tarkovsky only made 7 feature films. This is a surprisingly i number for a director regarded as one of the worlds greats. The most notable of these films are S And Stalker. Tarkovsky was involved in writing the film scripts for all his films and also wrote a on the theory of film directing.

E Tarkovsky died in Paris in 1986 at the age of only 54. Strangely, both his wife, Larissa, and the Anatoli Solonitsyn, who starred in the film Stalker, also died of the same rare illness that afl Tarkovsky. No-one is really sure how they got it.

Since 1970, Worthy Farm, a large dairy farm in Somerset, has been home to one of the biggest and most popular festivals of contemporary performing arts in the world. Glastonbury Festival is run by Michael Eavis and his family, the owners of the farm, and attracts around 150,000 visitors for the four days of the event.

The festival does not take place every year. Every third year or so, the fields are given a year off to recover from the damage caused by all the visitors. During the festival, thousands of people continually walk through the various fields around the large farm, often in very muddy conditions, causing a variety of environmental problems in the fields normally used by dairy cattle.

Each field on the farm hosts a different aspect of the festival. The main stage is the Pyramid stage. This is where most of the big name stars of the world of pop and rock perform. Recent headliners have been Beyonce and the Rolling Stones. There are also a number of other stages around the site, where music fans can enjoy different styles of music from electronic dance to alternative rock, as well as ethnic and world music.

But music is not the only attraction at the festival. In the Circus Field, there are contemporary circus performances, and around the farm there are many large tents where festival-goers can productions, stand-up comedy and theatre, too. Those who have become tired from all the excitement of the festival can go to the Green Field to get an aromotherapy massage or to relax in one of the meditation tents.

Enjoy dance

Accommodation on the site is, for the most part, fairly basic. Visitors are required to bring their own tents and these are then put up in the special camping areas. The camping areas tend to be very crowded and many festival-goers forget where their tent is and can spend hours trying to find it. Motor homes and caravans are not allowed on the main site, but a limited number of special luxury tents, called tipis, are available for hire in the tipi area. These are perfect for people who find camping in a normal small tent, all too often in the rain, an unpleasant experience.

The festival is staffed by thousands of volunteers, who perform duties such as serving at food stalls, cleaning up the site and acting as stewards. They offer their services in return for entry to the festival. This means that profits from the festival from the sale of tickets, food and drinks can be used to support a large number of local and national charities rather than a large amount going on paying wages.
