The Desert of Forbidden Art

Crazy but true, this documentary tells the story of how a Soviet artist named Igor Savitsky risked being condemned as an "enemy of the people" by rescuing 44,000 pieces of forbidden art and enshrining them at a museum in the far desert of Uzbekistan. Savitsky's collection is now a Russian national treasure worth millions. Ed Asner, Sally Field and Sir Ben Kingsley narrate. But the real star is the incredible, mind-bogglingly immense art collection itself. 80 minutes
