Tower Bawher is like a whirlwind tour of Russian constructivist art. The film is filled with visual references to artists of constructivism (Vertov, Stenberg, Rodchenko, Lissitsky and Popova) and enriched with Georgy Sviridov's music that opened the Soviet regime's nightly newscast in the 1970s. The title is an allusion to constructivist architect Vladimir Tatlin's tower, conceived in homage to the glory of the proletariat.
