Andrei Konchalovsky, born 1937 as Andrei Sergeyevich Mikhalkov, is a Russian film writer and director, brother of Nikita Mikhalkov and friend of Andrei Tarkovsky. His films were successful, but his liberal attitudes got him into trouble with Soviet authorities, so he eventually moved to the United States, where he continued to direct successful films.
- The First Teacher (1964) was his first feature film.
- Andrei Rublev (1966, dir. Andrei Tarkovsky): Konchalovsky was one of the writers on Tarkovsky's first big critical hit.
