Back in the USSR, one man created a secret collection of suppressed masterpieces. The Desert of Forbidden Art tells the incredible story of how one man -- Igor Savitsky -- stashed a treasure trove of banned Soviet art worth millions of dollars in a far-off desert of Uzbekistan. One artist championed by Savitsky -- Elena Korovay -- reacted with some chagrin to his zeal for her work.
