A melodrama wrapped in the ideological garb of the time. The life of famous opera singer Oksana passes before her eyes in a series of flashbacks: her childhood in the countryside full of music, her farewell from the village and her lover Anton, her training at the conservatory, the start of her career in Paris. When the war breaks out, Oksana loses contact with Anton, who ends up a German prisoner-of-war. As much as the depiction of the war and the parties involved in it follow state regulations, the cinematic and thematic freedoms taken by Parajanow still shine through with unusual clarity: the almost abstract studio scenes, the unpredictable narration, which doesn’t unfold chronologically, and the depiction of the music, songs and churches.

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
