Soviet Animation 'Ave Maria'


As part of Washington Babylon’s release of Doug Valentine’s Life and Times of a South Vietnamese Special Police Officer we are going to feature content from worldwide archives that recall one of the most painful episodes of recent American and Asian history. This is an animated film produced by the USSR in 1972 using the Ave Maria as a soundtrack while condemning the American war in Vietnam. It is a fascinating opportunity to see what was being told to audiences on the other side of the Iron Curtain and how artists in Russia felt about this hot front of the Cold War.
