Plot synopsis
One of the first full-length animated films made anywhere in the world, THE NEW GULLIVER tells the story of Petya (Vladimir Konstantinov), a young Soviet pioneer who falls asleep reading Swift's Gulliver's Travels - and awakens in a surreal Lilliput, updated to include jazz bands, mechanized tractors and (in the best revolutionary spirit) a miniaturized workers' proletariat, who rise up with the help of the giant Petya. Ptushko's first feature as director is an astounding hybrid of stop-motion animation (over 3,000 separate figures were used) and live-action footage.
