Discuss elements of socialist realism in the film Old Genie Khottabych. Did you think visual elements in Khottabych enhanced the ideological message of socialist realism? Explain how Soviet reality interacts in this film with the world of fairy-tales. What is the role of magic vs. progress? Do you feel that, in the end of the film, the children protagonists are empowered by the Genie? Is the Genie ultimately “disempowered”? How does the film present the tropes of collectivism and conformity? Is conformity presented as a vice or a virtue? (think about Khottabych having to give up a large part of his identity to become a Soviet citizen).
