His footage, Chagall says, inform no tales: they painting solely his ideas and recollections. He’s towards the phrases “symbolism” and “fantasy” and “surrealism”; to him the inside world of the thoughts is as actual as on a regular basis actuality.

The lady is his first spouse, Bella, his childhood sweetheart, who died in America over the last warfare. “She has flown over my footage for a few years, guiding my artwork.” he explains.
