Fiodor Khitruk

Fiodor Khitruk was born in 1917 in Tver, USSR. He graduated in graphism in 1936 from the OGIS College for Applied Arts in Moscow. Two years later, he started working for Soyouzmoultfilm as an animator, then as a director from 1962 onward. His first film, The Story of a Crime (Istoriya odnogo prestupleniya), was widely acclaimed by critics and marked the revival of Soviet animation. Far from Disney – which was very popular at that time –, Khitruk’s universe was subtle and satirical. Admired both by his peers and the audience, he was awarded the Short Film Palme d’Or in Cannes in 1973 with Island (Ostrov), the Short Film Special Jury Prize in Cannes with I Grant You A Star (Daryu tebe zvezdu, 1975) and received the Audience Award at the Ottawa Festival with The Lion and the Bull (Lev i byk, 1984). Khitruk is also famous for his children’s films : Boniface’s Holiday (Kanikuly Bonifatsiya, 1965) and the series about the adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh (Vinni Pukh, 1969-1972). In 1993, Khitruk co-founded the school and animation studio SHAR with three other Russian animators, Iouri Norstein, Andreï Khrjanovski and Edouard Nazarov.

Exhibition Faces From Places

In twenty episodes, the animated series “Portraits de voyages” directed by French director Bastien Dubois offers a subjective and colorful world tour made of original stories, but also a technical challenge combining « motion capture, » painting and the aesthetics of the journey diary. The exhibition, which also reveals the secrets of animation, allows the visitors to get the inside scoop on the filmmaking through original sketches and preparatory drawings.

Bastien Dubois

He was born in 1983 in the North of France. Around the age of 20, after hitchhiking from Lille to Istanbul, he started studying animation in Supinfocom. During his studies, he came up with the idea of an animated journey diary. This is how Madagascar, a Journey Diary (2010) was created. It received many awards and was nominated for the Oscars in 2011. It was followed by an animation series for Arte based on the same principle, Portraits de voyages, and the short Cargo Cult (2013), an anthropological fable taking place in Melanesia during World War II. Bastien Dubois is currently working on his first feature film, a project for which he earned a writing residency at the Abbey of Fontevraud in late 2014.
