A TIME FOR THE MURAL TO RETURN
In 1933 Mexican artist Diego Rivera was commissioned to create a mural in the grand lobby of Rockefeller Center. He was trying to say something and he was abruptly interrupted. The mural was destroyed. The Story was not finished.......

2008 marks the 75th anniversary of the censorship of the Rockefeller Center mural. This vision to propose a more ethical future for the world is more relevant than ever.

This animated documentary tells the story of the RCA mural through first hand accounts with Rivera's family, contemporary artists and philosophers in order to consider the implications of the mural today.
