Animation: I Shall Give You a Star
Soviet animated short by Fyodor Khitruk about gender issues. First released c. 1974. The story is told in four vignettes through different times, all showing the same story: a man meeting a woman, them getting in love and woman practically becoming a kitchen slave doing chores while man keeps making verses for her.Can be viewed online with subtitles on Youtube.
This short provides examples of:
- Arabian Nights Days: second segment
- Author On Board: like many other Khitruk's shorts for adults (see also: Film, Film, Film or Icarus and Wisemen) this one is a unflinching social satire, specifically of modern relationships
- Nubile Savage
- Stay in the Kitchen: woman's eventual fate in all vignettes
