Almost all films of Iljenkos were developed with literature presentations. The period of the "poetic school" lasted for only 8 years. Already 1872 the central committee of the Ukrainian Communists decided on a resolution in which this cinema was sentenced tending to system hostilely and bourgeois Ukrainian nationalism.
Since that decision the films of Juri Iljenkos, Sergej Paradschanows and Leonid Osykas were forbidden and banned until the late eighties of the 20th century
