- Synopsis / Plot
- A silent revolutionary epic and a remarkable avant-garde film, Zvenigora - Dovzhenko's initial film in his 'Ukraine Trilogy' (along with Arsenal and Earth) - is almost religious in its tone, relating a millennium of Ukrainian history through the story of an old man who tells his grandson about a treasure buried in a mountain. The film blends both lyricism and politics and uses its central construct to build a montage praising Ukrainian industrialisation, attacking the European bourgeoisie, celebrating the beauty of the Ukrainian steppe and re-telling ancient folklore.
