Primary Instructor:

Using the best examples of the Soviet Union animated films this course will introduce students to major concepts of the USSR culture in general and Soviet propaganda aims and influences in particular.

Animation in Eastern Europe took an active development after the 40's , when highly-recognized teams of artists, illustrators, authors, and directors were assigned and dictated by their governments to produce documentaries and animated films that would depict morality tales for children, satire on the capitalism in the West and even experimental visual art spectacles.

This class aims to deepen the appreciation and understanding of animated films produced in the Soviet Union at the time of the "iron curtain" through critical viewings, readings, and explorations of their social, historical, and cultural content.

Course Requirements:

There will be weekly one question mini quizzes and one final assignment, which may be either a creative project or a paper. No absences will be permitted.
