Part of the “Disney and Soyuzmultfilm: A Story of Fantasy” series. Animation historian Pavel Shvedov will tell about the classic work by the American master studio – the screen adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” – as part of the “Children’s Pioner”.
A chance encounter with the White Rabbit completely changes Alice’s life. Instead of yawn-inducing books about English history, which she and her sister are forced to read aloud, she must face the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the March Hare, and the Queen of Hearts. The inhabitants of Wonderland live their lives of strange delights, but nevertheless, Alice cannot be distracted from her goal. Whether she is large or small, she sticks to her beliefs, even when she is on the plaintiff’s stand.
The idea to adapt Lewis Carroll’s classic English fairy tale stuck with Walt Disney for thirty years. After an ill-fated attempt to direct a film version with Mary Pickford as Alice, and the success of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” (1937), he found what he was always looking for: the American artist Mary Blair’s drawings brought John Tenniel’s original illustrations to life. After being rebuked for over-Americanizing a classic work, Disney predicted the future. Just ten years later, the images from “Alice in Wonderland” became an inspiration for new artists, writers, and musicians from Jefferson Airplane to Pink Floyd.
After the screening, a teacher from the TsEKh School of Contemporary Dance, Tatyana Fateeva, will hold a class for children.
