"In 1999, Boris Yeltsin passed a resolution to resurrect the biggest cartoon studio in Eastern Europe, Soiuzmul'tfil'm. From the mid-1930s until its forced demise in the mid-1990s, the studio had produced more than 1,500 films. Yeltsin felt it important that Soiuzmul'tfil'm be restored to its former glory, and even proposed keeping its original name, a nationally famous acronym made from the three Russian words for "union" (soiuz), "animation" (mul'tiplikatsiia) and "film" (fil'm). But the union referred to had vanished in 1991. Was reviving the studio a nostalgic paean to communism?" "David MacFadyen reveals that Soiuzmul'tfil'm, upon reopening, continued doing what it had since its inception in 1936, when it was the only Russian studio able to take cartoons from sketchbook to the silver screen. In a historical and theoretical reassessment of animated cinema in Russia since World War Two, Yellow Crocodiles and Blue Oranges examines a large number of Soviet cartoons to decipher what about them allowed them to survive under communism and continue to survive with equal success under capitalism."--BOOK JACKET.
