Soviet Animation in 3D Picture house at FACT

From as early as the 1930s Soviet inventors developed pioneering stereoscopic projection, but with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the films they created are rarely seen.

Gone too is the infrastructure needed to show these movies, special projectors and screens destroyed when old movie theatres were refurbished and turned into multiplexes.

Not all is lost thankfully, allowing us to bring you this rare programme. The screening starts with a colour fragment from the first stereoscopic film.

Curated by Birgit Beumers, Aberystwyth University and courtesy of the Russian State Film Archive, Gosfilmofond, NIKFI (Moscow), Nuku-Film (Estonia) and the Estonian Ministry of Culture.

Soviet Animaion in 3D is part of Abandon Normal Devices festival, hosted in 2013 by FACT.  For further information on the rest of the AND festival programme visit
