The best ever Ukrainian film and one of the best films ever madeworld around – an iconic “Shadowsof forgotten ancestors” will be screened by Austin Film Society Cinema on Saturday, July 15 at 2:00 pm. AFS Cinema has been recently reopened after renovation and is located at 6406 N Interstate 35 Frontage Rd Suite 3100, Austin, TX 78752. It will be screened in Ukrainian with English subtitles. This is what late Roger Ebert wrote about the film back in 1978: “But Parajanov has a genuine gift. He has thekind of heedless energy you glimpse in some of the early work of Martin Scorsese, pounding cameraworkso filled with itself it can hardly contain the story. And for anyone who’s interested in the Ukrainian culture and customs of perhaps a century ago, “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” is a treasure,a repository of costumes, masks, superstitions and beliefs, courtship customs and the sufferings of short lives with too much work in them.”
