Et in Arcadia ego


A film about the heritage of Stalin’s totalitarian power across the entire band of countries situated between Russia and Western Europe, using an analogy drawn from the popular game of chess. For its entire length, the film follows a chess game, played by two residents of Odessa, Ukraine, sitting near the city’s Arcadia Beach.
