Synopsis

5 Days of Life of Kazimir Malevich, a renowned Ukrainian artist, who fights the Soviet regime for the right to create art freely. Malevich presents his most provocative painting, The Black Square, for public view and creates a major uproar challenging the Soviet government with the questions: Does a painting carry a hidden message? Could it be a political prophecy? His opponents, fellow artists, do not understand his art. The women in his life know they would always be his second priority. 5 hectic Days, to explicate the interchangeable connections between: time and space, art and politics, love and inspiration.
