Alexander Pushkin lives again through Andrei Khrzhanovsky's A Pushkin Trilogy. The famous poet was also a doodler and left a legacy of 2,000 sketches in pen and ink on his manuscript sheets. Director Khrzhanovsky studied Pushkin's line drawings and then put them together with his poetry in this three-part, animated feature. The end result shows the poet combatting censorship, defending revolutionary issues, sarcastically commenting on the society of his day, and even facing the Czar's questions about his unusual views.
