Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors is a film that shows rather than tells. Unforgettable for its subject matter and aesthetics, the dialogue is minimal and the visual style bursts with what would become Parajanov’s signature use of colour, dramatic camera work and rich symbolism. Featuring a detailed portrayal of Ukrainian Hutsul culture, Hutsul traditions, music, costumes, and dialect, it launched Parajanov’s filmmaking career and is now regarded as one of the great works of the 20th century.
