The documentary film Revolution: New Art for a New World premiered in Paris

24 January 2017

The new feature documentary Revolution: New Art for a New World was screened in the Louvre on 22 January 2017. The film was created with the support of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.

Directed by the acclaimed British filmmaker Margy Kinmonth in the run-up to the centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917, the picture encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian avant-garde and tells the stories of such artists as Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich, Petrov-Vodkin, Rodchenko, Deyneka, and others.

The film features the stories of contemporary artists, curators, and performers, as well as personal testimonies from the descendants of the artists.

In the making of Revolution: New Art for a New World, producer and director Margy Kinmonth and co-producer Maureen Murray were given exclusive access to the largest collections of Russian avant-garde art at The State Tretyakov Gallery and The State Russian Museum. Additionally, the film-makers actively collaborated with the The Royal Academy of Arts in London during the production.

The grand premiere of the film was held at the Mayfair Curzon Cinema in London on 10 November 2016. The film was also screened in cinemas in the UK, Ireland, Gibraltar, and Malta.

Russian viewers will have a chance to see Revolution: New Art for a New World in Autumn 2017.
