This film is part of the Myths series.


Comedic skits based on the Russian folk tales by Yefim Chestnyakov. Part 3 of the "Myths" series.

Yefim Chestnyakov was a Russian artist, philosopher, writer, poet, sculptor, architect, director, photographer, teacher, educator and utopian dreamer. Chestnyakov lived a long, obscure life full of want and deprivation in a lost village. The discovery of Chestnyakov's work after his death was a shocking sensation for Russian culture and art.

The last skit is based on Chestnyakov's story and painting "The Apple", first published in 1914. The story can be read here (in Russian) and the painting can be seen here. Scans from a 1990 publication with some of his other paintings can be seen here.

There are two versions of this film available - a shorter one 10:40 long from a DVD (presumably, the final edit), and a longer one 12:30 from a VHS.
