Two Marxists in Hollywood

A Film by Zoe Beloff

Synopsis

A series of Interviews with Sergei Eisenstein and Bertolt Brecht about their experiences in Hollywood. The film was shot in contemporary locations in Los Angeles that were important to these men. The actors are young boys whose naivety and enthusiasm captures the spirit of these radical artists and invites us to re-imagine their ideas for today.
