A SPRING FOR THE THIRSTY (1965) * with switchable English and Ukrainian subtitles *

Yuri Ilyenko Writer: Ivan Drach Stars: Dmitri Milyutenko, Larisa Kadochnikova, Nina Alisova

A Spring for the Thirsty is a parable centering on an old man, who lives a secluded life in the desert, alone with only his memories and photographs. His well, once a source of joy and hope for the thirsty passerby, is now rarely used. No longer able to find comfort in his memories, he turns all his photographs to face the walls. Divided into five sections, the film is practically a silent film. From its powerful, abstract black-and-white images, however, we learn that the old man is waiting to die.

DVD-R is in Ukrainian with switchable English and Ukrainian subtitles..  Approx. 71 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
