RoseLee Goldberg notes the film I Want to Be a Futurist was the Futurist sequel to Drama in Cabaret No. 13.[4]


The film opened with a cabaret sequence in which the artists paint their faces in preparation for the evening’s entertainment. A caption reads: "13 O’clock has struck.[5]

It contained some poetry reading and dance performances. The story itself begins with a 'Futurist Dance of Death'. Larionov and a woman (Maximovich) dance on a table, they lunge at one another with knives, and Maximovich is killed. Then comes the 'Futurist burial': Larionov carries Maximovich's body out, kisses her and leaves her in the snow. Larionov is expelled from Futurism. He takes poison and dies. The other Futurists depart, stepping over his body, on which a note is pinned: 'Expelled from Futurism'. Maximovich's corpse is seen, also with a note pinned to it: 'A victim of Futurism'.[6][7]

The plot of the movie is unknown, despite the fact that this film is only partially lost: just a few frames have survived.
