"Shadows of Forgotten
Directed by Sergei Paradjanov
"One of those
rare films that look totally fresh and uncorrupted -- as if the director hadn't pilfered a
thing from other filmmakers but had simply discovered the camera, and how best to use it,
by himself"...San Francisco Chronicle. Set against the ethnographic
panorama of the Carpathian Mountains, Sergei Paradjanov's masterpiece is a brilliant, epic
story of starcrossed lovers . Its images "become superimposed on the mind, and
will emerge later with a new and more profound meaning, a meaning that escapes logical
analysis, that cannot be grasped intellectually, but which calls upon us to respond with
feeling" (Robert Walke). With Ivan Nikolaichuk and Larisa Kadochnikova.
