Soviet/Russian Art Anonymous 07/24/2021 (Sat) 09:33:57 No.1699
The Russians are great at art. This is a thread for their crafts, mainly films/tv, but other interesting forms of art are welcome too. The Criterion's restoration of War and Peace is simply gorgeous.
I want to post Natalia Trubnikova who I think is the work of art in and of herself.

Also since we're on this subject, I absolutely adore these illustrations of Russian fairy-tales by Ivan Bilibin. Such fresh modern look for late 19th/early 20th century.

The self-taught folk painter Niko Pirosmani is a national hero in Georgia, and his visual style has become part of the country's identity. Like van Gogh, he lived in poverty and only became popular after his death. I highly recommend Giorgi Shengelaia's 1969 biographical film Pirosmani for a (somewhat fictionalized) introduction to his life and work. Another brief tribute to the painter is Sergei Parajanov's short Arabesques on the Pirosmani Theme (1986).
I made this short guide to Russian animation >>531

>>1699 >The Criterion's restoration of War and Peace is simply gorgeous. Indeed, I'm finally getting around to watching it. I think there will never again be a film like this.
>>1746 Thanks for the guide; Russian animation is (or was) peak art. They really treat each frame like a painting. The story of Soyuzmultfilm studio is very sad: >In 1992 Films by Jove, an American company ran by Oleg Vidov and his wife Joan Borsten, signed a nine-year contract with the new Soyuzmultfilm director Stanislav Rozhkov that gave them exclusive distribution and editing rights for the major part of the studio's collection. They were supposed to share incomes, but only after their expenses would've been paid off. As a result, animators received nothing for their past works. In 1993 they elected a new director, a shady businessman Sergei Skulyabin who promised to turn the studio into a joint-stock company. Instead he signed a new contract with Vidov, extending it from nine to twenty years and returning a number of non-profitable films. His plan was to sell exclusive rights for all past and future films to his dummy corporation and bankrupt the studio.[61][62] >When animators realized it, they managed to overthrow him with the help from the Union of Cinematographers and Goskino, although the Ministry of State Property still refused to step in and return the studio the state status. Skulyabin also refused to leave the director's chair up until 30 June 1999 when Sergei Stepashin finally signed a long-awaited order that turned Soyuzmultfilm into a unitary enterprise. By that time the production completely stopped.[62] In 2001 the Supreme Court of Arbitration of Russia returned the rights to the whole collection back to Soyuzmultfilm which led to a legal battle with Films by Jove. Only in 2007 Vidov and Borsten agreed to sell the collection to the Russian business magnate Alisher Usmanov who donated it to the state-run children's channel Bibigon.[61][63] Around the same time the studio came back to life. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Russian_animation) Oleg Vidov was an actor to defected to America and still came back to Russia to bite a piece off a big cake. How much I despise this kind of people.
>>1751 No problem, anon. I just realized that half the links are dead by now. But at least there are titles so it shouldn't be too hard to find them.

I have always enjoy returning to The Island starring Pyotr Mamono. I like its meditative feel and how it focuses on Russian tradition of yuródivyy, the holy fool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz-vegualMg
