David Burliuk and the Japanese Avant-garde:

In 1920 David Burliuk left Russia to emigrate to America via Japan where he spent two years until 1922. While in Japan he cooperated with the emerging Japanese futurist movement, putting on joint exhibitions with the Sanko and Mavo art movements of Japan, writing several books and painting.

Using archive footage and locations in Japan, this film is a chronicle of Burliuk's time in Japan.
