1965. USSR. Dir: Sergei Parajanov. With Ivan Mykolaichuk. 97 min. 35mm print.
This subversive Soviet-era gem weaves Ukrainian folklore into a tragic story of obsession and sorcery. Filled with haunting portraits of the rural countryside and feverish, frenetic camerawork, the film’s unique visual language was so innovative and rebellious that Parajanov found himself blacklisted from Soviet cinema.
