Paradjanov’s Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (1965) is a landmark of Soviet-era cinema because of its emphasis on folklore and mysticism in Carpathian Hutsul culture, which broke with Soviet-realism.This This book, as the first full-length companion to the film, offers readers a close analysis of the film’s symbolism, a plot synopsis, and a history of the legendary production process. It closes with an account of the film’s reception by critics, audiences and Soviet officials, and the controversies that have kept it a subject of heated debate for decades.
