RUSS 370 - Russian Animation and Popular Culture

1 unit(s)
The course examines some of the most famous works of Russian animation: from the early full-length features by Ivanov-Vano to such recent blockbusters as the Bogatyri series and Ivan Tsarevich and the Grey Wolf. A special emphasis is given to the Soviet productions of the 1960s and 1980s which acquired a cult status and remain an important part of the popular culture in the Russian-speaking world. We study artistic, cultural, and linguistic contexts of the films in question. Dan Ungurianu.
