More Soviet Animation

Contact—This should be Ian Brown’s favorite animated film. The creators stole the theme from “Godfather” and based on it a short film about contact between an earthman and an alien. Avantgarde and funny.

Hedgehog in the Fog—The title says it all. If you think that it doesn’t say much, you are right. This beautiful short film has a lot of dialogue in Russian and it is translated, but don’t try too hard to understand the plot. Just enjoy the visuals.

There Once Was a Dog—before Russians and Ukrainians hated each other they made lovely colorful movies about each other. The fat wolf breaking through the fence is one of the most unforgettable moments of my childhood.

Film Film Film (part 1), Film Film Film (part 2)—Like “Ograblenie po…”, this is another masterpiece of “film about film”, a love poem to the cinema industry. The director running on the ceiling at 8:20 of part 2 is another unforgettable childhood moment.
