I can bring the history of blood splashing on the camera back to 1964. In
Paradzhanov's Ukrainian film _Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors_ tha main
character's father is killed with an axe and the blood runs down the lens
in a subjective shot. It transforms then into silhouetted horses. It is one
of great examples in the creative use of colour during the 1960s.
