This is an interesting art history documentary on the works of nine Russian artists living in exile in Paris. The USSR relaxed some of its stringent demands for Social Realism in painting and sculpture during the government of Nikita Krushchev, and these Parisian emigres took advantage of the new freedoms to invite people to their apartments for exhibitions of their work. The government might have relaxed the rules for awhile, but they were not yet ready to buy any of the capitalist-tainted new modes of artistic expression. Finally, the artists now in Paris were granted permission to leave the country and were accepted by the French and currently form a cohesive, interactive and creative group. Interviews with each of the artists are highlighted by images of their work.
