In 1940 Josef Brodsky was born in Leningrad to intellectual Jewish parents. In the 50s he worked as a writer. In 1964 he was condemned to five years of forced labour. In 1972 he was expatriated and moved to USA, where he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987 and died in 1996. Animated filmmaker and documentarist Andrey Khrzhanovsky has composed an unusual portrait of Brodski and post-war Russian society, combining archive material with newly filmed images as well as surreal and animated sequences.
