Mikhail Kalatozov - Jim Shvante (marili svanets) aka Salt For Svanetia (1930)
by ramencity (Portland, Oregon)
Many visually stunning scenes--it's the superior of Turksib, which is on the same video release. Incidentally, Svanetia is not part of the Ukraine, but is in the northwest of the Georgian Republic, in the Caucasus, not the Carpathian, mountains. This area is still very remote. The Svan language is distantly related to Georgian; there are only a few thousand speakers left.
