    The conception of the ancient struggle of man versus nature has been heavily warped in the modern world. From a contemporary standpoint it is difficult to think passively of the environment. In the light of the impending crisis of global warming and the changes associated with it, it is easy to think of the environment as both a victim and an agent of retribution: the continuously more common occurrences of dramatic weather and toxic surroundings serving as a condemning consequence of humanity’s actions. This was not Tarkovsky’s portrayal of the post-human “natural world” of Stalker. He instead chooses to focus on the continuous renewal of the natural world and the inevitability of it continuation.

    Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film, Stalker, casts a shadow over the present, which is what most pieces of science fiction do. The reason why the film is still so resonating to this day is because it depicts how deeply troubled people are by events that are yet to occur. In the matter of Stalker, the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986 was what had not yet occurred. After the accident, however, the nomenclature of Tarkovsky became suitable in describing the aftermath because the real world eerily…
