Materializing ideas: the thoughtful animation of Garri Bardine

Authors: Mélat , Hélène

Garri Bardine (born in 1941) is one of those rare directors of Russiananimated films of his generation who has remained very active, despite the financialconstraints that are particularly significant in this field. Already having twenty-fivefilms to his credit, he continues to create films that use the visual possibilities offered byall sorts of materials alongside a variety of musical realms to convey to the viewer ideas,which are dear to him. Themes of tolerance, the absurdity of war, life passing, socialsatire and an increasingly significant satire on post-Soviet society are realised thanks toa careful choice of techniques (at the start drawing, quickly abandoned, then modellingclay, puppets, use of string, miscellaneous objects etc.) and of music that sometimesdictates the rhythm of the work. In this way Bardine, a real all-rounder of animation,achieves films that reflect on the human condition.
