Just before his sudden death, a businessman accuses his son-in-law of embezzlement. His daughter is convinced of her fiancée's innocence and tries to clear his name and unmask the real villain and is aided by secret messages…from her dead father. Or are they? WHISPERING SHADOWS, a very rare occult creeper, can now be seen by the public for the first time since its release in 1921. It is presented here in a new digital scan with an eerie and atmospheric new theatre organ score by Andrew E. Simpson.
BONUS: THE DEVIL'S ASSISTANT (1917) -- in which a physician enacts revenge on the woman he loves after she marries another by treating her exhaustion with maddening drugs. The film depicts her descent into madness in a red-tinted trip to hell itself.
WHISPERING SHADOWS is sourced from a preservation by the Library of Congress from the sole surviving 28mm print of this title. THE DEVIL'S ASSISTANT is sourced from a rare print in the collection of the USC Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive.

The photography was quite good,; colorful Urkrainian costumes; the story, a basic love story, yet for some reason hard to follow.
overwhelmend with its directness, originality and cinematic beauty. I am privileged to have acquired a copy to see it again;
this is a film I will return to view again. I greatly admire the
personal vision of Parajanov.
the wedding customs, the family life, the social life seen in that film lived in the memory of my father who never had seen this film and who was born, raised and lived all his life in Yugoslavia.
I still cannot understand why some people argued that this film is about Ukrainians and not about Russians. Idiotic nationalistic observations of something that is much older than the very idea of nation cannot explain anything at all!
