L'Harmonica de verre (1968) d'Andreï Khrjanovski : la dissidence sous de nouvelles formes

Abstract : Andrei Khrzhanovskii began to study and work on animation in the wake of the more tolerant, although contradictory, spirit that characterized the Khrushchev’s Thaw, during which a few animators began to experiment with new styles and create films on topical issues addressed to an adult public. With The Glass Harmonica Khrzhanovskii ventured to present a harsh critique of the system in a style that clearly departed from the prevailing children-oriented Disney style adopted in the studio Soiuzmul’tfil’m. By proposing a subtle message about the position of the artist in a totalitarian system and endorsing a manner that contrasted with the official and approved style, Khrzhanovskii created a work of art that, despite its exceptional artistic value, could be hardly accepted by the authorities.
