On 4 December, the great Russian animator Garri Bardin will visit the Children’s Pioner lecture series, and will present one of his most famous works, “The Ugly Duckling.”
A musical interpretation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic. “The Ugly Duckling” is an ironic and unbearably sad story about an outcast, whom the denizens of the farmyard refused to claim as their own. Being terribly awkward, he can’t find a place for himself in a society that marches in file to rousing marches and never once thinks about the existence of a big world outside the confines of their yard. In the most famous sense, “The Ugly Duckling” is a children’s version of Orwell, and a shot of tolerance especially necessary for those that are only just learning to live in the company of others.
Created with various animation techniques, this wonderful artistic film was first shown at the Locarno International Film Festival.
After a break, a teacher from the TsEKh School of Contemporary Dance will hold a class for children.
