Elem Klimov, probably best known for directing the harrowing WWII masterwork Come and See (1985), made this short documentary, Larisa, a year after the death of his wife, Larisa Shepitko (who was an accomplished filmmaker herself). Shepitkto passed away in 1979 following a car accident that killed her and four of her colleagues, and this film acts as a profound love letter to a major talent gone far too soon. Klimov uses footage from her films — including some behind-the-scenes material, snapshots, and voice recordings — to capture, in warm and reverent ways, the relationship he had with his wife and her work. The last shot is perhaps the most emotional moment in the entire piece, with Klimov using the last image his wife ever recorded, a fog-shrouded and magnificent tree, to express the eternal continuation of life.
