Synopsis

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Enter Here portrays two of Russia’s most celebrated international artists, now American citizens, as they come to terms with the new Russia. Two decades after he fled the Soviet Union, Ilya Kabakov overcomes his fears to create six art installations in venues throughout Moscow, where he was once forbidden to exhibit his art. Amidst the cacophony of a city and a country in dizzying transition, he comes face to face with the memories that have made him who he is.

Through the eyes of artists who experienced Stalin’s tyranny, through the rich underground art scene that arose during the Soviet Union’s later stagnation, Enter Here explores the ways in which art can outwit oppression, illuminate what comes next, and transcend time - offering a beacon of light for repressed societies today.

Reviews

"A marvelous documentary." - The New Yorker

"A graceful, enormously moving portrait of a complicated artist and an artistic collaboration. Like the Kabakovs' installations, it resists its own frame in time and space and invites you to return once and again." - Artforum 

"Ms. Wallach has fashioned a multifaceted, informative portrait conveying the emotional urgency of the Kabakovs' work... an intimate picture of Soviet life across many decades of utopian ambition and upheaval. Dynamically shot, inquisitive camerawork and well-chosen instrumental music conspire to keep the viewer immersed." - The New York Times

"Sparkling...a marvelous blend of wit, craft and intelligence." - The Jewish Week
