Comments on Space in Poste (1929) by Mikhaïl M. Tsekhanovsky (1889-1965)

Authors: Verny , Serge

The film Poste (1929) by M. Tsekhanovsky, illustrator and film director, based on a text by the poet Samuel Marchak, is an adaptation of the eponymous book conceived by the same two authors. The conjunction of this graphical universe with cinema is viewed in the artistic context of this period. Animation and montage reveal the dynamic unity of this poem in images. A registered letter written by a child pursues its recipient who has left on a voyage round the world. Space unfolds at several registers of representation, between the second and third dimensions, between the abstract and the figurative. Plastic and rhythmic composition play with typography and words themselves. The story progresses from the particular to the general to culminate in a hymn to the postmen of the whole world.
