Piotr wants to marry his beloved Pidorka, but when her stern father won't hear of it, he strikes a deal with the mischievous demon Bassaruv he may come to regret. Based on a short story by Nikolai Gogol and full of remarkable, surrealist imagery, Ilyenko’s film is one of the most important films of Ukrainian poetic cinema and an early forerunner of folk horror.

The film will be introduced with a short set of songs from Edinburgh Ukrainian Choir.
