Zinaida Semenovna Brumberg (August 2, 1900, Moscow - February 9, 1983, ibid.) - Soviet director and cartoon film artist, screenwriter, Honored Artist of the RSFSR (1968). One of the sisters (younger), Brumberg, is a creative tandem that created the canons of Soviet animation. She was born on August 2, 1900, the day with her older sister Valentina, who was one year old. Upon completion in 1925, Vkhutemasa participated in the creation of the first Soviet cartoons (“China is on fire”). She began working in animation as an artist-animator, then moved to directing. Together with Valentina Brumberg created such films as “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Puss in Boots”, “Lost Letter”, “Three Fat Men” and many others. One of the most famous works is the cartoon “Fedya Zaitsev” (1949), where among quasi-realistic, quasi-dimensional figures an elementary place is occupied - “stick-stick-cucumber” - a little man painted on the school wall by the pioneer Fedya. In the early sixties, with the help of this little man, the sisters Brumberg blew up [an unknown term] the established canon of Soviet animation, in the creation of which they themselves participated.
