Zvenigora

Rated NR 90 minutes 1928

A grandfather who trades in salt (Nikolai Nademsky) looks after his two grandsons, the idealistic nationalist dreamer, Pavlo (Les Podorozhnij), and the industrious Bolshevik worker and soldier, Timoshka (Semyon Svashenko). In a surreal, modernist story that leaps back and forth over a thousand years of history and Ukrainian mythology, the grandsons battle each other in a civil war. Soviet director Aleksandr Dovzhenko's first film in his Ukraine Trilogy was shot mostly on location.
