" Hibel's Russian Palette" This 55-minute documentary won a Cultural Award from the American Association of Museums and was broadcast on nearly 100 P.B.S. stations and countless local network and cable channels throughout the country.
Originally, the program’s goal was to show to its viewers the Russian people and its many cultural creations through the eyes of American artist Edna Hibel. However, due to her overwhelming acceptance by the Russian authorities during her two historic exhibitions of her paintings and stone lithographs in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), she was granted the right to film, with rare exception, any place she wanted for this documentary.
Consequently, the documentary turned out to be an historic piece of art film:
the first television program ever created in Russia (and the former Soviet Union) by a foreign woman. Among its unprecedented footage is the last recorded interview with the director of the Hermitage Museum, images of a Romanov count, interviews with refuseniks, and the first program to show interviews with people on the streets, on their jobs, in their schools, and on their farms. All of this is captured as the program interweaves beautiful images of Russia’s dancing—in the street, in a nightclub, and at the famed Kirov ballet—visual art at the Hermitage, architecture throughout various cities, and a famous Russian film, the first ever paid for by donations from the Russian people. The viewer is also treated to poetry and to many selections of Russian music, including classical, liturgical, and rock and roll.
In addition to the cultural material, there are many beautiful scenes, including views inside and outside of churches, and scenery of many different landscapes, including rivers, oceans, and rare aerial views.
