Aleksandr Khanzhonkov

Aleksandr Khanzhonkov

Aleksandr Aleksejevich Khanzhonkov ( _ru. Александр Алексеевич Ханжонков; 1877 - 1945) was Russia's first cinema entrepreneur. He produced "Defence of Sevastopol", Russia's first feature film, and Ladislas Starevich's ground-breaking puppet animations.

Born in a small village on the banks of the Don river in rural Russia in 1877, Khanzhonkov in 1911 founded Russia's first cinema factory, a limited company, whose main financial backer was Ivan Ozerov, an influential banker and member of the Russian State Council.
