“RG” wrote earlier that this year Russia is represented at the festival are very wide. The program was selected 12 Russian films. Tape “Nose, or Conspiracy “such” by Andrei Khrzhanovsky from school-Studio “Shar” was in the main competition.
I must say that this film is a long story. Work on the film was conducted for years. The idea very long to make a full-length cartoon, the basis of which would be the story of Nikolai Gogol’s “the Nose” and Opera “the Nose”, which was created in 1930, the composer Dmitry Shostakovich. On the script of the cartoon worked Yuri Arabs and he Hrzhanovsky. The festival premiere was held in January of this year at the festival in Rotterdam. But the picture there didn’t get into the main competition.
the Festival in Rotterdam took place in real life – that is, managed – and it came and the Director himself with his family. In particular, the father joined the son – Director Ilya Hrzhanovsky, which also helped the film out to the audience.
In Annecy – for obvious reasons – Hrzhanovsky Sr. and for a reward, and just to present the picture could not come. But he wrote a video statement in English and in French thanks the festival. Andrey Hrzhanovsky jokingly said in his address that Shostakovich will be happy and pointing up. And reports that this jury prize inspired him to new work. “I’ll tell you a secret that I already started it,” said the Director. Son Ilya Hrzhanovsky posted a video of the speech on the page of your social network Facebook. In the same video you can see a fragment of the cartoon and understand what a wonderful and unique style it is cleared.
the Painting “the Nose, or Conspiracy “not” created with the support of Ministry of culture and cinema Fund. The main prize of the festival in Annecy was awarded to the cartoon French animator Remy Sellye “Calamity Jane: the childhood of Martha Jane Cannary” (Calamity, a Childhood of Martha Jane Cannary).
the festival awarded one more Russian – Kirill Khachaturov for the animated film “Naked”. She was selected in a student essay contest and won a prize for a graduation film.
