Mask of the Red Death

Yugoslavia, 1969 (MIFF 1973, Z is for Zagreb)

Director: Pavao ├ů┬átalter, Branko Ranitovic

Stalter's remarkable hand-painted evocation of Edgar Allan Poe's haunting tale of famine and plague. Stalter has captured more of the elusiveness of the moody poet than any other film-maker.
