Glass Harmonica

Posted on: March 21, 2007 | Views: 888 | Comment

This seriously anti-Semitic clip from 1968 is nevertheless a mind-bending and hypnotic work of art, and reflects on the still valid issue of the worship of the money contra purity of art.

Glass Harmonica was shelved by Soviet censors who found it ideologically disturbing. It was finally released after perestroika. It was the first animated film scored by the late legendary Russian composer Alfred Schnittke. The animators Yulo-Ilmar Sooster and Yuri Nolyev-Sobolev, were among the most important artists of the Soviet underground. Before finding refuge at Soyuzmultfilm, they participated at the famous and controversial Manege (opposite the Kremlin) exhibit of underground art which was closed down by Khruschev and condemned by Soviet press.

This 20 min. 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.
