A key film from Slovak cinema's golden era, Eduard Greener's 'Dragon's Return' is a radical fusion of ancient folklore and experimental modernism - and an exciting re-discovery. A reclusive potter nicknamed 'Dragon' is exiled from his isolated mountain village. Years later he returns, aiming to win back the trust of the villagers, but faces suspicion, guilt, and simmering violence. Set at an unspecified time in the distant past in a world ruled by superstition, this deceptively simple story is imbued with mythic qualities. Shot in luminous monochrome and boasting an extraordinary score by llja Zeljenka, Greener's visionary film is a work of brooding atmosphere and rich physicality. It is an elemental vision of a world lost in time.
