    • Synopsis
    • The film is an attempt to recreate the world of Marc Chagall
      and his myth within the genre of a folklore ballad. We are
      not exploiting Chagall's images, but are attempting to create
      a dramatized projection of his creativity onto the movie
      screen, relying on both, facts and fantasy (as Chagall himself
      The story is based on real events which occurred at the
      time of Chagall's short-lived Vitebsk "commissariat" in 1917-
      18, during which time he creates the Academy of Modern Art,
      inspired by his dreams of a bright and beautiful future.
      Many pictures by Chagall and Malevich are used in the film.
