Director: Wadim Berestowski
A 1986 examination of the master animator, his life, times and work. Long overdue, this documentary covers his pioneering and dedicated work. From his initial scientific films animating insects to his painstaking feature The Tale Of The Fox we see the lengths required to achieve the complex scenes he created. Interviews with his daughter Irina (who collaborated with him on some of the films) and others who worked with him give us insight into the life and work of one of the great cinemagicians.
