Chagall In School” takes place in 1920, a few years after the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia when Marc Chagall is asked to head a school for artists in his Russian hometown of Vitebsk and realizes his dream of a free school for anyone who wishes to explore their artistic aspirations. Chagall’s goals are quickly complicated when the most impressive artist of the time, Kazimir Malevich, arrives to join the faculty, and the artistic soul of the school as well as Chagall’s own future as an artist, are contested.
