History of belarusian cinema
belarusian feature movie - "Liasnaia byl'" was made by a script of
belarusian writer M. Charot and Yu. Tarych in 1926. It was soon
followed by "Da zautra" (1929, dir. Yu. Tarych), "Kastus' Kalinouski"
(1928, dir. U. Hardzin), "U ahni narodzhanaia" (1930, dir. U. Korsh-Sablin),
"Zhanchyna" (1932, dir. Ia. Dzihan). Among belarusian writers working
for cinematography and professional scriptwriters were:
P. Brouka - "Hto tvoj siabar?", 1934;
Ia. Maur - "Paleskiia rabinzony", 1935;
Z. Biadulia - "Salavej", with M. Taube, 1937;
A. Vol'ny, "U ahni narodzhany", 1930;
R. Karabec, "Dvojchy narodzhany", 1934.
In 20-30-ies belarusian studio was located in Leningrad.
It was moved to Miensk and became "Belarusfilm" later. The first
sound belarusian movie was "Pershy uzvod" directed by U. Korsh-Sablin
in 1933. It is considered as one of the most significant films of pre-war
belarusian cinematography. . The pre-war belarusian movies were having
a sharp class orientation. Many of the movies were devoted to the class
struggle and revolution:
"Baltyjcy", A. Fajncymer,1937;
"Adzinaccataha lipenia",Yu. Tarych, 1938;
"Vohnennyia hady", U. Korsh-Sablin, 1939.
Other movies were depicting development of soviet people
in the conditions of socialist reformation of society:
"Dvojchy narodzhany", R. Karabec, 1934;
"Zalatye ahni", U. Korsh-Sablin, 1935;
"Shukal'niki shchascia", U. Korsh-Sablin, 1936;
"Shliah karablia". Yu. Tarych, 1935.
After WWII the main topic of belarusian cinematography was heroism
and survival of belarusian people during the years of fascist
"Kanstancin Zaslonau", U. Korsh-Sablin,1949;
"Hadzinnik spyniusia apounac^y", M. Fihurouski, 1958;
"Praz mohilki", V. Turau, 1965;
"Ia rodam z dziacinstva", V. Turau, 1967;
"Al'pijskaia balada", B. Sciapanau, 1966;
"Idzi i hliadzi", E. Klimau, ~1985.
These movies are characterised by deep realism, well developed
psychological portrets of the heroes, experiment and search
for new artistic solutions.

She carries in her mind 900
years of her family. Her grandmother belonged to the aristocracy,
she had never altered her dresses and had kept them in a cask. Her
two sisters live in Amsterdam. She inherited from her Scandinavian
father two suitcases of childhood photos. Elena is one of these people
who never wear a clock because of a perfect knowledge of time. In spring
she brings into the house armfuls of tulips and narcissi to make
garments using them. In her house hall there are two cats; the first
one is on the armchair and the same one is in the mirror...
