An old man accidentally fishes a mermaid (rusalka) out of the river. Based on the story by A.N. Tolstoy.

Unfortunately, the video above cannot be watched outside of Youtube, so the subtitles need to be attached to the video separately (click on the link below the video for instructions).

The song at 2:45 in the film references Kostroma, the pagan Slavic fertility goddess. The song was sung as part of an autumn seasonal ritual.

The literary source material can be read here. It has recently been republished in Russian in an award-winning book with illustrations by Yana Sedova (first page).
