Man Follows Birds

(Chelovek ukhodit za ptitsami)

A medieval pageant of boyhood presented with a visual majesty to rival Khamraev’s contemporaries Andrei Tarkovsky and Sergei Parajanov. Man Follows Birds is a mystic vision, an ‘eastern western’ that exhibits Khamraev’s instinctive feel for landscape and the natural world.
