Product Description

DVD NTSC!!! DVD Region: ALL; DVD release: 2006; Play time: 98.00; Sound format(s): Dolby Digital; Language(s): Russian; Subtitles: English; Format: 4:3, 16:9; Genre(s): Fairytale, Cartoons. 25 TH - THE FIRST DAY (1968) co-director with Arkadi Tyurun (10 minutes). Norstein's first film and his personal salute to Russia's leading avant-garde and post revolutionary artists. The name of the film refers to the first day of the October Revolution. He combines poetry of V. Mayakovsky, with motifs of K. Malevich and images from K. Petrov-Vodkin, A. Deneka, V. Tatlin, S. Chehonin, P. Filonov, N. Altman, Yuri Piminov, The score is taken from the 11th and 12th symphonies of Dmitri Shostakovich. Both the art and music had been banned in the 20s as 'too formalistic.' Forty years later Norsten's elegant film - edited in the style of Sergey Eisenstein -- was also banned as 'too formalistic' and politically weak (Many of the politcal posters used by Norstein in this film emphasize promises made, but not kept, by Lenin.). This film has rarely been seen in Russia or the West. THE BATTLE OF KERJENETS (1971), co-directed with Ivan Ivanov-Vano (10 minutes). This film depicts the struggle of Russian people against foreign invaders. Ivanov-Vano recognizing Norstein's talent, gave his young protégé considerable artistic freedom during production of this film and a co-directing credit. Fresco and icon paintings in the traditions of the ancient masters are combined with music from Rimsky Korsakov's opera Tale of the Invisible City Kitezh.

This Dvd is a must for any lovers of animation. Each film is in itself a work of art, though sometimes not going along tradtional storytelling lines they all have their own beauty. Sometimes they veer more towards being a work of art than animation and this is not a bad thing in my opinion.
