Marc Chagall: The Colours of Passion

UK, 1977 (MIFF 1979)

Director: Charles Harris

'Marc Chagall' uses Chagall's own statements to develop the positive ideas and attitudes to be found in his art. Nourishing a dazzling command of a variety of artistic media — from oils, lithographs and ceramics to sculpture, tapestry and stained-glass — his philosophy reflects widely, and often critically, on many of the conventional ideas in the creative arts.
