In July 2016, four reels of Derevensky Detektiv, a 1969 Soviet film starring Mikhail Zharov (1899-1981), were found in a fisherman’s net trawling the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, 20 miles off the Icelandic coast. The recovered footage is interwoven with clips from Zharov’s lengthy filmography to form a song cycle, reflecting on how life, history, and art can intersect and endure on celluloid.
