The Island

26 01 2009

This is an animation made in the early 70s that won the Golden Palm in Cannes as Best Short Film. I have also found more information on this website:

Fyodor Khitruk (b. 1917) began his career as an animator, and came to be one of the pioneers of Soviet animation. Apart from animated satires of topical issues that sharply criticise everyday phenomena and are directed towards adult audience, Khitruk has also made many lovely children’s animations. The festival presents a comprehensive screening of Khitruk’s films that are both cheerful and visually very inventive. The screening includes Khitruk’s direction debut Story of a Crime (1962), Man in Frame (1966) and The Island (1973).
