CGiii Comment

Destroyed by the Soviets, this lost film has been reconstructed using original slides...
 
The photography is remarkable...infused with a noble diginity and a tangible beauty.
 
It could have been a masterpiece - sadly, we will never know.
 
The wanton destruction of art...a continuing scourge.
 

Watch...
