Larisa Shepitko on Criterion
Criterion is offering an Eclipse box set of Larisa Shepitko, which includes Wings and The Ascent. Shepitko was one of the most promising directors of her era, late 60s and 70s. She was a student of Alexander Dovzhenko, and a contemporary of Tarkovsky. Sadly, her career was cut short by a car accident.
