WISHING TREE

£59.50

Original British 20 inch x 30 inch Double Crown Poster for the 1977 Tengiz Abuladze Drama THE WISHING TREE (NATVRIS KHE), based on short stories by Giorgi Leonidze and starring Givi Berikashvili, Sofiko Chiaureli, Ramaz Chkhikvadze, Soso Dzhachvliani, Giorgi Gegechkori, Lika Kavjaradze, Kakhi Kavsadze, Iya Khobua, Zaza Kolelishvili, Erosi Mandjgaladze, Otar Megvinetukhutsesi and Sesilya Takaishvili.

The textures of folk legend and striking visual allegory permeate The Wishing Tree, an episodic pastorale set in a pre-revolutionary Georgian village and spanning four seasons in the lives of various village characters. Some twenty-two stories are woven into the narrative, which centres on a beautiful young woman who is forced to marry a man she does not love; her unsanctioned love for another leads her to ritual disgrace and sacrifice.

The poster is in fine unfolded (rolled) condition
