Plot synopsis
Ernst Neizvestny is the sculptor of his own fate. He sculpted it harshly, sharply, crudely. According to his own words, like a "butcher, soldier, demiurge". His legendary confrontation with Khruschev at Manezh made him the most scandalous and noticeable figure on the 1960's art circuit. His memorial to Khruschev at Novodevichie cemetery put an end to their complicated relationship. Today, Neizvestny's works are exhibited throughout the world. He went from being a little boy in Sverdlovsk to being a citizen of the world, invited to see kings and presidents.
