4K restoration! With her beloved Boris MIA on the front lines, Veronika is left on her own to survive the German invasion and the advances of Boris’s aggressive cousin. Featuring delirious, exhilarating camera work by genius cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky (who would work with Kalatozov again on the now-legendary I Am Cuba), this epic saga of love and war claimed the top prize at the 1958 Cannes Festival.

The Cranes Are Flying will be introduced by its instructor, Paul Wright, Ph.D.
