The film will be introduced and discussed by filmmaker Kuntal Bhogilal.
'Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors' was adapted in 1964 by Ivan Chendei and Sergei Parajanov from a novel by Mikhaylo Kotsyubinsky. It is a stylised cinematic rendition of the tale of Ivan and Marichka, two childhood friends who fall in love despite the hostilities between their families. Marichka dies in a drowning incident and Ivan marries Palagna, but he can’t get over Marichka’s death who constantly appears to him. The film is hauntingly lyrical in its use of colour, costume and music. Set in the Carpathian mountains, the film is a rare glimpse into the native Hutsul culture of Ukraine.
The film will be presented and discussed by film maker Kuntal Bhogilal. Bhogilal studied film direction at Film and Television Institute of India, Pune. Having worked as an associate on some key feature films of the 1990s while also pursuing Dhrupad music, he now visits various film schools to lecture on cinema.
