THIS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH
Kellen Auditorium at 6:30 PM
66 Fifth Avenue, NY

Screening of “Magica Russica” with filmmakers Yonathan and Masha Zur Some of the most beautiful animations in cinema came out of Soviet Russia. Combining heartfelt moral allegory with astonishing craftsmanship, they had a power and sincerity to which much modern stuff pales. Drawing on masses of archive clips, including footage from rare classics, “Magia Russica” gathers surviving animators of the Soyuzmultfilm studio to give a passionate account of production under communist rule. A rich visual treat, this is also the story of the boundaries of art and ideology, and of men dedicated to magical cinema.
