Red! Art in the Land of Soviets
INA and co-producer Arte just released a 52’ documentary that sheds light on the Russian artistic revolution. This film documents the rising of new artistic movements inspired and formed by the Revolution.
Russia, February 1917. A series of strikes rocks the capital Saint Petersburg, bringing to an end centuries of Tsarist rule. New artistic movements flourish including Rayonism, Suprematism, and Constructivism, each bolder, more inventive than the last.
Revolutionaries and artists march side by side, with Malevich, Goncharova, Kandinsky, Rodchenko serving as figureheads and playing an active role in building the new society.
Fifteen years later, under Stalin’s yoke, avant-garde artists have no choice but to adopt a naturalist aesthetic, more accessible to the masses, and realist painters are placed on a pedestal.
However, following Stalin’s death, a new generation of artists emerges such as Deyneka, followed by Bulatovand and Kabakov, who excel in circumventing the rules in order to revive creativity and innovation in forms.
Using archive images, documents and filmed footage, along with research into graphic design, the film tells the story of the rise of movements that, in a flourish of activity, helped shape 20th century art.
These artists and their work may be found at the Grand Palais in Paris which currently runs the “RED – Art and Utopia in the land of Soviets” exhibition until July 1, 2019.
Director: Pierre-Henri Gibert
Producer: Sylvie Cazin - INA
