Animated Film from Krasnodar Gets Applause in Cannes

Animated Film from Krasnodar Gets Applause in Cannes

Krasnodar, August 18 – Yug Times. Young animators from Krasnodar have won the hearts of European film lovers. At the end of May, Marapatsutsa, an animated cartoon film based on the paintings of the Kuban artist Sergei Vorzhev, was shortlisted for the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival.

The national premiere of the cartoon film took place in Krasnodar in mid-July. We have asked producer Aleksei Dvoeglazov to recount about the work on the project. “The history of this movie began when Vorzhev brought his surrealist paintings to decorator-designer and a great film enthusiast Igor Garkushenko asking him to publish a book. When he saw the pictures, Garkushenko literally got carried away by Marapatsutsa.”

Q.: What does this odd word mean?

A.: It’s an airship that works on alcohol — 95% of the fuel is moonshine, the rest is spirit. Outwardly it looks like a soaring jug equipped with a lot of different mechanisms, that is used by Kuban Cossacks for their journeys.

Q.: When you started promoting Marapatsutsa, did you hope that you would go as far as the Cannes Festival?

A.: To tell the truth, I did feel that this cartoon was worth a lot. At the same time, we had sent it to several film competitions, including the Berlin Festival, but it was only France that really noticed it. To get shortlisted for the festival, the film had to compete with thousands of animation films shot by quite well-known studios and companies. I believe that for a ‘homemade’ movie shot for somebody’s own money it was a great success.

Q.: About the money — will your expenses repay?

A.: For the time being, the only thing we got was popularity. Presently the film is living an active festival life. I keep on promoting it on various international forums and competitions.
