FILM, FILM, FILM
dir. Fyodor Khitruk, 1968

Not quite as weird as FRU-89 which I posted in the previous Weird Soviet Cartoons episode, but still quite weird—in the best way possible. It’s one of so called “adult cartoons”, which didn’t mean sex cartoons back in the day, but just a cartoon that wasn’t made for little kids. 

This one is truly iconic. It illustrates the process of creating a movie, from writing a screenplay to having it approved to design to filming to premiere. A true masterpiece in my opinion, and definitely a personal favourite of mine.

August 8 is also Stanislav Sadalsky’s birthday, I saw a TV program about him this morning and I thought – now this is a good day to rewatch The Last Year’s Snow Was Falling! I haven’t watched it in a while!
