A new documentary film about Russia's most celebrated artists.


Ilya Kabakov survived famine, war, fear, guilt and his mother's homelessness, and created a new kind of art that speaks to the dreams of millions. Now, he and his wife Emilia have to prove it.

Directed by Amei Wallach, known for her acclaimed film Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, The Mistress and The Tangerine, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: ENTER HERE traces the husband-and-wife team, U.S. citizens for decades, as they confront their tumultuous Soviet past in the dizzying Russian present. Returning to Moscow, where Ilya Kabakov had been forbidden to show his work, the artists prepare for unprecedented exhibitions of their extraordinary walk-in installations at major venues such as the Pushkin Museum. The film is presented in cooperation with the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg.
