Irakli Kvirikadze's poetic montage film is inspired by legendary lives and artistic discoveries by Tarkovsky and congenial artists of the "Soviet Renaissance." The film documents the Museum AZ's project, exhibited at the Franco Zeffirelli Foundation in Florence. The project was a visual poetic homage to Tarkovsky and his contemporaries, Soviet underground artists.
