Authors: Mélat , Hélène and Nemtchenko , Lilia

The town of Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk during the Soviet period) in theUrals is the third centre for animation in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg. Thearticle focuses on the work of the directors who have made the reputation of the Schoolof Animation of the Urals. The history of the Urals school of animation is dividedinto three stages: the first generation, that of the founders, which laid the foundationof animation at Sverdlovsk with a classic yet imaginative poetry and aesthetic; asecond 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 directorsborn in the 1960s, the heirs of the preceding generation, who continue and diversify theinvestigations of their elders and pursue new directions of artistic expression.
