This first introduction to Alexander Medvedkin's filmmaking career traces his process of developing a unique brand of cinematic satire throughout the period of the Soviet revolutionary experiment. Using original archival material and Medvedkin's writings for his unfinished autobiography, Widdis explores the films The Miracle Worker, New Moscow and the experimental "film train"--or kinopoezd--as well as the film Happiness.
