Sergei Parajanov‘s first masterpieces Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, based on Mikhail Kotsiubynsky’s Ukrainian novel, also inspired the great scientist and Pulitzer Prize winner Carl Sagan‘s book Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors. In the introduction, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan wrote: “…the haunting 1964 film by Sergei Parajanov gave us our title.”
