The Most Powerful Cartoon
24 June 2009 | by (Cyberia) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is only 149 seconds long, it manages to pack in some of the most powerful images in the medium. The soundtrack consists of the song "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child", accompanied by graphic images of racial prejudice - beatings, lynchings, electric chair, etc. You don't expect this sort of thing from 1932, but a Soviet propaganda cartoon has no need to pull its punches. The only false note is at the end, a statue of Lenin - we are supposed to believe that this white knight has the solution to the problem.

Ivan Ivanov-Vano later became the grand old man of Soviet animation, a big influence on geniuses like Khrzhanovski and Yuri Norstein.
