CGiii Comment

Destroyed by the Soviets, this lost film has been reconstructed using original slides...

The photography is remarkable...infused with a noble dignity and a tangible beauty.

It could have been a masterpiece - sadly, we will never know.

The wanton destruction of art...a continuing scourge.


Watch...
