Winnie-the-Pooh March completed in Suzdal


20.03.2017

@Kinopoisk Winnie-the-Pooh March was organized in the center of Suzdal as a part of XXII Open Russian Animated Film Festival, TASS reports.

The march marks 100’s birth anniversary of world-renowned Soviet animator Fyodor Khitruk. Around six hundred citizens and guests of Suzdal participated in this event. They gathered at the Central Square to let off hundreds of balloons with images of favourite heroes from Soviet cartoons created by Khitruk, such as Winnie-the Pooh, Piglet, Lion Bonifatsiy and others.

The organizers of the festival and the Winnie-the-Pooh March have remarked that the whole Soviet and Russian animation industry is in high demand now. The classical animated works by Khitruk are adored by children and adults too.

Such well-known animation artists as Yuri Norstein and Mikhail Aldashin took part in this campaign.

Fyodor Khitruk (1917–2012) is an author of dozens of animated films. The most popular of them are Winnie-the-Pooh Stories, Vacation of Bonifatsiy and Film! Film! Film!

The idea for the Teacher for Russia program originated with two graduates from Saint Petersburg State University, Alena Makovich and Elena Yarmanova after they came across Teach for All, a major international network of nongovernmental social enterprises. Four years have passed since then, and this year the Russian program celebrated its first graduating class.
7 November marked the centennial of the October Revolution—an event that, whatever you think of it, has done much to define the entire twentieth century. And of course, the main figure in these epoch-making events was Vladimir Ilich Lenin. We have attempted to “interview” the Bolshevik leader so that he might explain how he related to the tasks of revolution, politics, morality, and other questions that are important to us all.
