Alexander Dovzhenko - War Trilogy
Alexander Dovzhenko is regarded by some to be "the most neglected major film maker of the 20th Century". Mr. Bongo's box set presents his three major works in a single box set. When placed together, they chronicle Ukraine's tumultuous transformation from a pastoral, traditional, society into a modern communist state.
Alexander Dovzhenko's unconventional vision and experimental style remained rooted in his love for his native Ukraine; its culture and its people. Zvenigora, his first major film, is also his most joyous work, immediately hailed as a masterpiece by Sergei Eisenstein and V. I. Pudovkin.
A "white hot war film" in Jonathan Rosenbaum's words, Arsenal is placed alongside Battleship Potemkin as the great revolutionary masterpiece of Soviet cinema. It’s famous for its frank depiction of violence and its aggressive vision of the impact of modern warfare on a landscape rich in centuries of tradition.
Earth has remained Dovzhenko's most famous work, a vital influence on the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, Sergei Parajanov and artists around the world. This tale of generation conflict between traditional and modern Ukraine contains some of the most beautiful and unforgettable images in film history.
