Soviet Film Wednesday: The Cow

The Cow

I recently posted an introduction to the beautiful work of Aleksandr Petrov, who creates animations using pastel oil paintings on glass to create wonderful, unique frames of soft, muted colors.

Here is one of his early works, The Cow (Корова, Korova), made in 1989. In the story, a boy remembers how his family lost their cow; it is based on a short story by Andrei Platonov.
