This film explores art as a way of life, in homage to the life and creative principles of one of Russia’s most extraordinary contemporaries – Anatol Brusilovsky. A Surrealist, an abstractist defined not only by his art but by carving an astonishingly vivacious and colourful life amidst the perils of various regimes listing himself amongst the Picasso and Dali’s of this time. Filmed in different parts of the world, the film develops the artists’ idea that material things in the world of ideas mean nothing. When one defines something as beautiful it becomes beautiful and that age is not an obstacle but an ally to creativity.
