Born November 30, 1939, in Moscow. Graduated from VGIK (L. Kuleshov's workshop) in 1962. In 1964 Khrzhanovsky came to the "Soyuzmultfilm" studio, where he made his debut film, "Once upon a time there lived Kozyavin". The director's work is characterized by a constant interest for the history of Russian and world culture, as well as by delicacy and expressiveness of plastic forms. A special place in Khrzhanovsky's work is devoted to the Pushkin topic. The five films of the "Pushkiniana" cycle opened absolutely new possibilities for animation in mastering classical literature. They became not only a unique artistic, but also a scientific research film document. An honored art worker, a two-time winner of the Russian State Prize, Khrzhanovsky is also the winner of many international festivals. He teaches at VGIK and the School-studio "SHAR" in Moscow.
