Synopsis

Three short films by Evgenii Bauer, one of pre-Soviet Russia's most significant film pioneers. 'Twilight of a Woman's Soul' (1913) demonstrates the director's instinctive mastery of depth composition and his use of elaborate décor. 'After Death' (1915), adapted from Turgenev's 'Klara Milich', concerns the hold the dead can have over the living. 'The Dying Swan' (1916) tells the story of an artist struggling to paint a picture of death.
