  • "Soviet cartoons" or national school: who does Ukrainian animation belong to?
    Anastasiia Kanivets

    07.09 | 16:30 (EEST)

    "Kind Soviet cartoons" – this is probably the most famous definition of Soviet animation among the general public. Few people think that "Soviet cartoons" were actually created by national, pretty self-contained animation schools of various USSR republics. Ukrainian school was one of them and was one of the leading ones. The cult films "Alice in Wonderland", "Adventures of Captain Wrongel", "Treasure Island", etc., were created by this school. Yevhen Syvokin, Davyd Cherkaskyi, Yefym Pruzhanskyi and many other bright representatives of original animation were and are Ukrainian masters.  Film researcher Anastasiia Kanivets will talk about the peculiarities of the Ukrainian animation school and its complex relationship with the Soviet film production system. We hope our lecture will turn into a fruitful discussion about the development of Ukrainian animation!

    Art therapy is a powerful method of helping a person who has suffered mental trauma. It provides opportunities to restore personal resources and create new ones; to work simultaneously with corporal, figurative and emotional components of the perception of the traumatic experience; to release and comprehend intense feelings associated with traumatic events; to rethink these events and build new productive life strategies that will contribute to post-traumatic personality development. Working on psychological assistance and art therapy are necessary for psychological rehabilitation after psycho-traumatic events. Media art therapy is the newest type of art therapy that uses the possibilities of information and communication technologies to overcome the consequences of traumatic events.
