A good film to watch during Easter may be Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev http://mubi.com/films/andrei-rublev for the obvious reason that it pursues the themes of sacral dimensions in art, the artist's relationship to religion and his/her role in sublimating human suffering, contributing towards the work of redemption of souls ravaged by the destructive forces of human nature that threaten brotherhood and peaceful co-existence.
This rather long film is divided into eight sections and offers three hours and a half of meditation on the human condition and the aesthetic treatment of the scenes in black and white is poetic and haunting with enigmatic images of horses and water symbolizing life.
The Jester, Summer 1400
Theophanes the Greek, Summer-Winter-Spring-Summer 1405–1406
The Passion According to Andrei, 1406 (This section contains a reenactment of Christ's crucifixion.)
The Feast, 1408 (Caught by a group of naked pagans in the midst of a pagan feast, Andrei Rublev is tied to a cross and threatened to be drowned in the morning but is set free by a woman named Marfa.)
The Last Judgment, Summer 1408 (Andrei is unable to paint the scene of the Last Judgement at a church where he is working on murals and decides to paint a feast after he is inspired by a yurodivy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yurodivy#Eastern_Christianity character Durochka. )
The Raid, Autumn 1408 (During a raid by the local Russian ruler's jealous brother, the Tatars aiding the aggressor enter the church, and in the midst of the raid, Andrei Rublev kills a Russian soldier attempting to rape Durochka.)
The Silence, Winter 1412 (Andrei Rublev takes a vow of silence and stops painting.)
The Bell, Spring-Summer-Winter-Spring 1423–1424 (After the bellmaker's death during the massacre, the bellmaker's son attempts to cast a new bell for the local Russian ruler and succeeds, after which Rublev ends the vow of silence and resumes his work as an artist.)
