This is a clip from Man In The Frame (1966) directed by Fyodor Khitruk. Many in the Russian animation industry are still amazed that this film was ever produced, not to mention approved and widely distributed in the USSR. Khitruk had for several years wanted to make a film which openly critiqued bureaucrats instead of distinguishing them as bears and beavers in children¿s fairy tales. Innovative visuals were created with collage and dramatized by masterful use of music and effects.

This film is from the Masters Of Russian Animation DVD set - an extraordinary collection of Russia's most important animated short films by Russia's world renowned directors.
