Listen Papa!


Here’s a letter of a boy’s hate and love for his father, telling all that had once been kept unspoken.


Olga Poliektova and Tatiana Poliektova, twin sisters were born in St-Petersburg, Russia. From the early years they began to draw and graduated from the Art School and the University of Cinema and Television in the department of animation and computer graphics. After school, they started to work together as a film director duo and animators.

During these years they made several short animation films that took part in over 300 worldwide festivals and earned over 60 awards. Among the awards are: Giffoni Film Festival and New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival.

Their last film “My Grandfather was a cherry tree” was Oscar-nominated and was selected to the longlist as Best Short Animation Film.

Nowadays they have finished the new film “Listen Papa!”.
