The Ascent Film Poster


Sheptiko's last film tells the story of the martyrdom of Sotnikov, a partisan fighting against the Nazis in German-occupied Belorussia. The film is notable for its persistent religious imagery, as well as for its frank handling of the subject of Soviet collaboration with the Nazis, then unheard of in Soviet cinema.
