folk villian Baba Yaga, whose home is a hut that resides on the giant legs of a chicken. These sections mirrored the changing view of some communities in Eastern Europe, the deep dark woods originally a place of supernatural fear but evolving into a much more complex symbol during the war; a place to forage, a place to hide, a place to live. These drawn episodes were interspersed with tender contemporary footage of things like children eating mushrooms prepared by their grandparents, a bawdy wedding, the (re?)construction of sleek architecture- fluid scenes of present day Eastern European countries that nodded to the legacy from which they came.
