Synopsis

The works of the Ukrainian born artist, Zoya Cherkassky, sell for tens of thousands of dollars, but their bright colors tell a story of immigration, survival, and alienation. "Soviet Life" accompanies her on an intimate journey from the studio in the immigrant Tel Aviv neighborhood where she has met her husband, a migrant worker from Nigeria, to her childhood in Kyiv, in search of her lost Ukrainian-Soviet childhood, in hope to find the one place in which she would feel at home. This film is part of "The Artists from Kyiv" duo.
