Agreement with Hitler
'Agreement with Hitler' is about a group of young Belarusan artists who have come in art just after Perestroika, when the censorship was destroyed and the ideological control over art was stopped. The opportunity to work in new, earlier forbidden forms, adds to their pictures new power, and allocates their creativity in a new style, which can be defined as 'post-soviet figurativity'. Except for excellent technique, perfect academic training, which they have acquired at the Soviet school of painting, and unconditional talent, the heroes of film have in common also that the creativity of each of them is an original flight from severe realities of the daily life. It is no wonder, that, remaining unknown in their native land, they become all more popular in the West, and consequently it is possible to expect, that the same fate of other famous natives of Belarus: Shagall, Malevich, Zaborov is prepared for them...Surprising harmony of pictures of the artists, interiors of their workshops, reasoning on art and life itself, with its disorder and cruelty, also make the contents of film, the basic theme of which can be formulated as the situation of the artist in a country, where totalitarian regime is being revived.
