This panel will include a screening and discussion of Stanislav Sokolov's 3D stop motion animation Hoffmaniada (Гофманиада, 2018), one of the first full-length puppet animated film in the recent history of Soyuzmultfilm studio. The screenplay for the animation is based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s novels The Golden Pot, The Sandman, and Klein Zaches.  The Prussian writer of the early 19th century, E.T.A. Hoffman, is at the narrative center of this animation while balancing between the imaginary world of his own writing and his ordinary life as a lawyer.
