L'école d'animation de l'Oural : héros, motifs, histoires

Abstract : The town of Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk during the Soviet period) in the Urals is the third centre for animation in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg. The article focuses on the work of the directors who have made the reputation of the School of Animation of the Urals. The history of the Urals school of animation is divided into three stages: the first generation, that of the founders, which laid the foundation of animation at Sverdlovsk with a classic yet imaginative poetry and aesthetic; a second generation, trained by the great masters of experimentation Yuri Norstein, Fedor Khitruk, Eduard Nazarov and Andrei Khrjanovski, for which animation is the basis for all investigations – of material, senses, production –; and finally the directors born in the 1960s, the heirs of the preceding generation, who continue and diversify the investigations of their elders and pursue new directions of artistic expression.
