Episode 659: Conscience (1968)

Episode 659: Conscience / Sovist (1968) Special Guest: Sam Goff
Guest Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Ryan Luis Rodriguez

Ryan Luis Rodriguez and Chris Stachiw join Mike to look at the Conscience (or Sovist) from 1968. Directed by Vladimir Denisenko, the film is set in a small village during the German occupation of Ukraine. When one of the German officers is slain, his fellow soldiers demand that the partisan responsible be turned over, lest the entire village be wiped off the earth. The film was banned and didn't see the light of day until the post-Perestroika thaw.

Sam Goff of Klassiki discusses Ukranian and Soviet cinema of the time.

Correction: Any references to "the Ukraine" should just be "Ukraine". Thank you to Ally Pitts for the heads up!
