Skyscrapers Dance to Protect Yekaterinburg’s Architectural Heritage

The Kinoproba international festival-workshop for film-school pupils opened its doors in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg on Tuesday. The annual fest, which has organized jobs from the globe’s finest film colleges since 2004, was begun by an eye-catchiing brief computer animated film called “Dance A Trois.”

The film shows constructivist spots buildings in Yekaterinburg reviving and also dancing via the city. The 2-minute clip informs a classic romance. A woman– that is, the famous neighborhood resort Iset– walks through the streets as well as satisfies an additional local renowned towers– the white water tower. The male– that is, the wild water tower– provides a blossom to the female as well as they continue their dancing stroll with the painted streets of the animated city.

The developers of this anime– the widely known Yekaterinburg artists Alexei Ryzhkov and also Grigory Malyshev– have made Iset resort a little bit unimportant. The Iset resort forgets about her water tower boyfriend as quickly as she satisfies an additional interesting building– the DOSAAF structure. DOSAAF is the acronym for state-run public organization that has a range of military as well as severe training workshops for civilians, mainly for young adults and also kids. It was incredibly popular in the Soviet era as well as had branches all throughout the nation.

The Iset Hotel immediately falls for the DOSAAF building, as well as they leave the wild water tower behind. The tower ruptureds right into splits under the putting rainfall. But the story does have a shock finishing. The tune for “Dance A Trois” was composed by a Russian musician Alexander Pantykin, laureate of many global songs competitions and also now head of the Yekaterinburg branch of the Russian authors’ union.

Despite the simple plot of the clip, the anime highlights a very urgent problem in Yekaterinburg– the preservation of the city’s architectural heritage.

” We picked these specific structures intentionally,” among the animation creators, Alexei Ryzhkov, informed The Moscow Times. “We tried to show that these and various other structures are a huge part of our background, the background of our city and nation, and also they need to be preserved.”

All of the cartoon characters– the Iset hotel, the white water tower as well as the DOSAAF building– were built in 1930’s and, according to media records, are slated for restoration before the celebrations for the 300th anniversary of the city in 2023.

The Kinoproba celebration will certainly run till Saturday. Even more details about schedule, participants and also its program is available on its main internet site.
