Russia’s Open Book: Writing in the Age of Putin.

Hosted by actor, author, and activist Stephen Fry, RUSSIA’S OPEN BOOK celebrates contemporary Russian authors carrying on one of the world’s greatest literary traditions. Contemporary authors are interviewed extensively in the film, with contributions from their literary critics, publishers, and peers. Excerpts from their recent works are brought to life by vivid animated sequences created exclusively for the film - with Fry providing dramatic readings in English.

The sheer size of Russia, its brutal climate, the violence of its history, and the heroism and genius of its people all have contributed to a world of literature like no other. “You may think Russian literature is no more than a catalog of suffering and misery and woe,” says Fry, “but actually it’s so much more than that. There’s so much joy, there’s so much hope, there’s so much about the human spirit in it.” says Fry in the film. These Russian writers “must grapple with the past, live in the present, and create fictional worlds that will continue to exist in the future.”

A little strange choice of authors, but I appreciate the mention of Mariam Petrosyan’s ‘The House in which…’ {x}, love this book to bits.

Telling short films through gifs: THE MAKER

In this short film an odd creature awakens to find time ticking away. He opens up a book and starts making another creature similar to him. You might think he’s making a lover for himself, but in the end he hands his creation the same book and is wisped away, forever gone. 

His new creation now has to make a creation of her own. 

I like this short film because it represents life. You know that old “we’re going to die anyway so what’s the point”. The point is even though we don’t live on, our ideas, our creations, and our views do. They will be passed on and molded for generations to come with each one getting more beautiful as time moves on. 

And that makes it worthwhile. 

VIDEO

This video is one of my favorite short films. It is incredibly beautiful and heart wrenching.
