Notes

1Wordless except for some non-essential song lyrics
2Wordless except for some background songs that include the national anthem of the Soviet Union. This is a philosophical, political animated film about the confused and sad "perestroika" period, and the events, moods and atmosphere leading up to the August coup in 1991.
3"Handwinged" was first released in 2006. An updated version was released in 2007.
4"Şüräle" (see the Wikipedia article) is based on the poem of the same name by Tatar writer Ghabdulla Tuqay.
5"Bridge" is wordless except for the word in the snow at 3:25, which says "dad"
6Sokolova's "Sweetheart" is nearly wordless, except for some non-essential dialogue.
