what going on?


Bezhin Lug (Bezhin Meadow) was to be a Soviet film about a young farm boy whose father attempts to betray the government for political reasons by sabotaging the year’s harvest, and the son’s efforts to stop his own father to protect the Soviet state, culminating in the boy’s murder and a social uprising. Assigned to Soviet film-maker Sergei Eisenstein, the filming followed the same path as with his previous effort, “Que Viva Mexico”, into cost overrun and over-shooting of footage. Furthermore, Eisenstein’s usage of forbidden experimental film techniques outraged his government superiors, who ordered the film destroyed before it was even completed. Some footage survived, however, and was eventually compiled for presentation to the public in the 1970s.
