Eastern Corridor / Vostochny koridor

This newly-subtitled print is an attempt to save an astonishing tour-de-force from oblivion and restore it to the cinematic history of the Holocaust. Eastern Corridor should have occupied a major place in the international Holocaust filmography; alas, Soviet censorship prevented its wide release. Filmmaker Valentin Vinogradov captures the all-encompassing horror in wartime Belarus, where Germans, ghetto Jews, Communists and partisans are pitted against each other in a web of paranoia and violence. Echoing Tarkovsky and Parajanov, this forgotten gem of Soviet poetic cinema features Holocaust scenes shot with unparalleled force and artistic vision.
