The “Disney and Soyuzmultfilm: A Story of Fantasy” series, in the “Children’s Pioner” lecture series, continues with a screening of a milestone film for the American studio – “One Hundred and One Dalmatians,” which came out in the beginning of the 1960s. Animation history Pavel Shvedov will tell about the comeback of Walt Disney’s studio.
Admission to the screening is free with advance registration.
Roger, a composer and bachelor, lives with his master, Pongo the Dalmatian. Fed up with single life, Pongo arranges a meeting between his sweet but hopeless pet and Anita (along with her dog). After the double wedding, Pongo and Perdita have puppies. But Cruella de Vil has also taken an interest in Dalmatians, as she hopes to fill her wardrobe with new, unique fur coats. When Scotland Yard loses the trail, all the other animals around join the search.
“One Hundred and One Dalmatians” was the next Walt Disney film the follow “Sleeping Beauty” – the fairy tale that nearly destroyed the studio. The adaptation of Dodie Smith’s eponymous novel saved the animation studio from closing and returned its relevance. Disney celebrated the dawn of a new era by simultaneously opening its theme parks and returning to reality: the exciting detective story demanded concrete character types and recognizable sets. The use of xerocopy technology helped them create an English “look” that came in handy for creating the patterns on a hundred and one Dalmatians.
The film will be shown in its original version with Russian subtitles.
After a break, a teacher from the TsEKh School of Contemporary Dance will hold a class for children.
