Croak x Croak

Posted on: April 6, 2007 | Views: 76 | Comment

This clip is from a 1990 short film is the directorial debut of Yelena Fedorova, an artist who worked on several award-winning films produced by Soyuzmultfilm. For Fedorova the film is about the relation between leaders with unique personalities and the masses which follow them without question. Croak x Croak passed censorship but was never shown in the USSR, perhaps because the Soviet authorities saw too many parallels between the rapid succession of frog leaders and the rapid succession of Soviet leaders following the death of Leonid Brezhnev.

This film can be watched in its entirety on the Masters Of Russian Animation DVD set - an extraordinary collection of Russia's most important animated short films by Russia's world renowned directors.
