The adventures of Baron Munchhausen provided an excellent model for this animated cartoon: the noble seigneur’s tall tales of pursuits, rides through the air and dangerous encounters with wild animals and their surprising twists form a fantastic template for the drawing skills and visual elegance of the Mezhrabpom-Film animation department.

A passionate appeal in the form of an advertising film commissioned by Red Aid (MOPR), a partner organisation of Mezhrabpom, to raise international support for left-wing prisoners, this film combines contemporary documentary material with scenes from feature films like Vsevolod Pudovkin’s “Konez Sankt-Peterburga” (“The End of St. Petersburg”, USSR 1927) to great effect.
