The image of reality, which the author created in the film “The Ball Flew Away”, goes against the official Soviet art of the 1920s.
The artist depicted tall houses, as if pinching the space between them. In the empty courtyard, in the background, bounded by a fence, stands a little girl. She looks at the ball flying away into the endless empty space. In the windows you can see scenes of everyday life of the inhabitants of high-rise buildings.
The artist does not show the bright happy future of a Soviet person, but tells about a real, far from romantic everyday life. Through external naivety, tragic signs appear: a hanging figure of a suicide in the corner of the most famous canvas of the master.
