It is with great sadness that we inform you that on 18 April, 2019, Myriam Prongué, our friend and a cultural manager who always had a strong bond with Krakow, passed away. The sad news about the death of Myriam Prongué, a former director of Krakow’s office of Pro Helvetia Foundation, that took place on 18 April, 2019 in Switzerland, reached our office with some delay, probably due to the Easter break. This painful information makes me think of the very first years of our festival’s existence in the 1990s, when the project of an event devoted to film education and works of art and film school students was met with far greater understanding among the foreign partners than Polish cultural institutions and departments. One of the people and representatives of the institutions supporting Etiuda festival already during the very first years of its activity was Myriam herself, who as Pro Helvetia’s delegate, implemented in our part of Europe a program of cultural exchange called East-West. Having taking over the Krakow-based office of the Swiss foundation, she continued, among others, the collaboration with Rotunda - the Jagiellonian University’s Film Society of that time, on organization of events and issuing publications (”Andriej Tarkowski”, ”Siergiej Paradżanow”), supported the fledgling International Film Festival Etiuda and finally, what was probably the greatest achievement, helped to make the first six editions of Krakow Animated Film Workshops in 1996-1998 happen. The workshops were the initiative of three persons: prof. Jerzy Kucia (Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow), Bogusław Zmudziński (Rotunda Film Society), and Myriam Prongué. Thanks to generous support of Pro Helvetia, the event reached international level and became highly valued by the artistic community already at its start. It hosted world-renowned artists and outstanding pedagogues including Polish filmmakers - Mirosław Kijowicz, Piotr Kamler, Witold Giersz, Daniel Szczechura or Piotr Dumała, and foreign artists (invited to Krakow by the workshops’ host – Jerzy Kucia) - Nag Ansorge, Caroline Leaf, Georges Schwizgebel, Andriej Chrzanowski, Oksana Czerkasowa, Paul Driessen, Borivoj Dovniković Bordo and Christine Panuschka. Their students during these six 8-day long meetings were young people who had been carefully selected from hundreds of applicants from all over the world. Today, after many years, it is clear how high the level of the workshops was – this is proved by the careers of its participants, many of whom are now highly valued artists. Among them there are: Ulo Pikkova and Priit Tender from Estonia, Michal Struss from Slovakia, Basil Vogt from Switzerland, Geza M. Toth from Hungary, and the laureates of the Grand Prix of our festival’s Anima competition: Svetlana Filippova from Russia and Claudius Gentinetta from Switzerland. Myriam was throughout all that time very involved in the development of this undertaking. Even though it was theatre rather than film that she was most passionato about, she was fully devoted to the project which proved to be so important at the time when Polish animation was going through a crisis and getting finances for events of such rank was simply impossible. Regarding Krakow as one of the capital of the world’s animation, she kept on insiting on calling this truly international event with a local name – Krakow Animated Film Workshops. Three years after the East-West programme was finished, Myriam left Poland. The workshops initiated by her continued to take place, however, just as our festival did. This event was from its very beginning focused on promoting film education and, what’s especially crucial in that context, artistic animated film, which has been for many years now expressed directly in its new name - Etiuda&Anima. When I saw Myriam for the last time in 2017 during a jubilee meeting on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the International Animated Film Workshops, she told me frankly that in the first years of its existence, she had never expected this initiative to continua up till today. Myriam Prongué – a genuine manager of culture and enthusiast of Krakow will always be remembered by her Polish friends.

About the publication The monograph regards the history and contemporaneity of animated film through a prism of the ideological entanglement of this medium. The editors have invited film scholars and critics to reflect upon the dangerous liaisons between animation art and official propaganda. Propaganda that uses the intrinsically symbolic and synthetic language of animated film, may be utilized as a perfect "laboratory", allowing us to study the essence of manipulation, of rhetorical modes and of strategies of persuasion. The subject of art in service of ideology and propaganda requires a concentration on the egalitarian mainstream forms of animated film, such as children’s films and feature-length commercial production. Nonetheless, some of the texts refer to art-house animated shorts that combine personal commentaries on political issues with the reinterpretation and reconceptualization of propagandistic themes and styles. The authors study animated production against the background of historical and political contexts that include: Soviet and post-Soviet Russia, USA and Eastern European satellite countries during Cold War, Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany, People's Republic of China under Mao Zedong, Marshal Tito's Yugoslavia and its dramatic breakup, contemporary condition of European integration. The contributors represent cultural diversity and differentiated research approaches as they come from various academic and cultural environments (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, China, Greece/Estonia, Russia/USA, Bulgaria/Canada, Bosnia and Herzegovina/Sweden). Next to the papers written by the scholars of highly acknowledged status in worldwide Animation Studies (e.g. Mikhail Gurevich, Midhat Ajanović Ajan), we publish articles of the young generation of academics and film culture activists (e.g. Anna Ida Orosz, Jiří Neděla), as well as a manifesto of the 2017 Oscar-nominated animated film artist Theodore Ushev. The volume “Propaganda, Ideology, Animation” is a second part in the series “Twisted Dreams”. The first one, “Obsession, Perversion, Rebellion. Twisted Dreams of Central European Animation” (2016), was focused on the dissident and counter-cultural features of animated film that undermine social and political taboos. We drew upon Theodor Adorno's famous claim that mass culture may be described as 'psychoanalysis in reverse' for its ultimate goal is to anesthetize the anguish of critical reflection and to immerse the masses in the void of collective vacuity. In the current volume we attempt to switch the perspective. The contributors were asked to proceed with critical investigations into the political factors determining production processes as well as the form and content of animation. Moreover, they were encouraged to study ideologies and political doctrines of the previous and current century's global regimes reflected in the mirror of animated productions. If mass culture is psychoanalysis in reverse, then propaganda can be called 'behaviourism at full speed’, for it undertakes the task of controlling the behaviours of societies and nations. Regardless of their ideological backbones, the propaganda messages produced by 20th and 21st century political systems are based upon rather similar theoretical and methodological assumptions. From its very beginnings, animation has been used as a convenient channel to transmit ideology. Complex artistic works, educational children’s films, simple commercials – all of them have been incorporated into propaganda apparatuses upholding various political systems. The engineers of social order developed its effectiveness and transformed it into a powerful weapon of agitation and manipulation. After a period of stagnation in the 1990s and 2000s, in the following decade, animated propaganda seems to have entered a Renaissance phase. The echoes of 20th century propaganda reverberate in phantasmagoric discourses of populist prophets who unite their followers around great dualisms spread from inclusive values of pride and devotion to exclusive feelings of fear and hatred. Contemporary readers may benefit greatly from discovering and deconstructing the propaganda messages, especially since the logic of the Cold War, based on absolute ideological polarization, has made its reappearance in the ideological war between European nationalisms and Islamic fundamentalisms, and in the escalating trade wars between the USA and China. Excerpts from the academic reviews The texts collected in the revived volume are undoubtedly a valuable contribution to animation studies that enriches both Polish and world subject literature with many new thoughts and findings. Among the authors there are such outstanding and acknowledged experts in the field of animation studies as Mikhail Gurevich or Midhat Ajanović Ajan. The volume's biggest advantage is that it may serve both film scholars and regular animation aficionados who may learn about such distinguished artists as Lotte Reiniger or Jan Švankmajer. It should also be noted that the volume's erudite introduction in many cases supplements the content of particular texts with a deeper reflection.

“Self-Portraits of Animation Authors” are among the most anticipated events of each of the Festival's editions. In these interactive performances, artists meet the audience, talk about their work and reveal the secrets of their techniques. Guests of the 25th jubilee edition are: Dutchman Paul Driessen, Estonian Űlo Pikkov and Canadian Steven Woloshen. Paul Driessen Paul Driessen is a Dutch film director, animator and writer. In the 1960s, having completed his studies in graphic design and illustration at the Academy of Arts in Utrecht, Driessen began animating commercials for TV in the Netherlands. Soon George Dunning, in search for talent, hired him as an animator for his full-length animated film “Yellow Submarine” (1968), featuring The Beatles’ music. He also helped Driessen emigrate to Canada, where the latter became a member of the National Film Board of Canada in 1972. In the 1980s Driessen taught animation at the University of Kassel, Germany, after Jan Lenica.
