Andrei Khrzhanovskii’s The Glass Harmonica (1968). Dissent in new forms.

Authors: Pontieri , Laura and Mélat , Hélène

Andrei Khrzhanovskii began to study and work on animation inthe wake of the more tolerant, although contradictory, spirit that characterized theKhrushchev’s Thaw, during which a few animators began to experiment with newstyles and create films on topical issues addressed to an adult public. With The GlassHarmonica Khrzhanovskii ventured to present a harsh critique of the system in a stylethat clearly departed from the prevailing children-oriented Disney style adopted in thestudio Soiuzmul’tfil’m. By proposing a subtle message about the position of the artistin a totalitarian system and endorsing a manner that contrasted with the official andapproved style, Khrzhanovskii created a work of art that, despite its exceptional artisticvalue, could be hardly accepted by the authorities.
