Cinema @the MFA: The Desert of Forbidden Art

How does art survive in a time of oppression and Soviet rule? Young Igor Savitsky rescues 40,000 forbidden artworks and creates a museum in the desert of Uzbekistan, far from the watchful eyes of the KGB. Sally Field, Ben Kingsley, and Ed Asner voice the diaries and letters of Mr. Savitsky and the artists who settled in Uzbekistan after the Russian revolution of 1917.

Screening is FREE with Museum admission.
