Rodina Elektrichestva


Variety says of this film based on a story by Andrei Platonov: "[it] turns the classic boy-meets-tractor plot into stirring cinema." In it, a mechanically skilled boy transforms a useless old motorcycle into a much-needed irrigation pump, answering the drought-stricken Turkmenistan villagers' prayers briefly. This medium-length (38-minute) film was completed in 1968, but was shelved by the authorities for some reason. more
