A bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian avant-garde. The film tells the stories of artists such as Chagall, Kandinsky, and Malevich—pioneers who flourished in response to the challenge of building a new art for a new world, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years and silenced by Stalin's Socialist Realism.
