What we didn't know about... Genndy Tartakovsky

17 October 2019 text Sevda Semer
You may not know his name and you will hardly recognize him on the street, but you probably remember who his Samurai Jack or Dexter are. Born in Russia as Gennady, Tartakovsky is an animator and filmmaker who also worked on The Powerpuff Girls, Star Wars, and the Transylvania Hotel. He's got Emmy and Annie awards, but if it already sounds pretty pop to you, his work's actually far more punk - Genndy sets his own rules and likes to experiment with his films.

In his new series, Primal (on Amazon Prime from October 8), a prehistoric man and a dinosaur get together to try and conquer the food chain instead of falling out of it. It's a slow, bloody, cruel plot, voiced with real animal roars and not a single word.
