In St. Petersburg the masterpieces of Russian film show at the floating cinema

In Saint-Petersburg during the International economic forum held an extensive cultural program, even organized views on water in a specially constructed five rooms on the Neva. And someone for the first time, went to the Mariinsky theater for the premiere of “the bronze horseman” Glier, someone was out in the rain at the Palace square to watch on a giant screen “Battle for Sevastopol” by Sergey cavalry mokritskiy. In parallel with the impressions of the XI International festival “the circle family”, which also opened the film by Sergei cavalry mokritskiy, “I’m the teacher.”

Still from the film “I am a teacher.”

The main role was played by the actor and producer Alexander Kovtunets, concurrently the President of this family festival. His character in the years of the great Patriotic war continues to teach at the school in the occupied territory. He wants to survive at any cost, but the choice he still will have to do so to remain human and not trash.

We always come up with something unusual, — says Alexander Kovtunets. On lake Baikal in the days of the festival, has established the pontoon to arrange a laser show. In the jubilee year of Tchaikovsky lake in Kaliningrad showed the ballet “Swan lake”. This year the Ministry of culture asked us to do something interesting in the framework of the International economic forum of the Year movie. And we made the film screenings on water. On the quays of the Neva river established five floating cinema. The waters are often busy, but from time to time we give permission, and the screens come up. The rest of the time they are standing on the dock, and any passerby can see the masterpieces of Soviet and Russian cinema: “I step through Moscow”, “Spring on Zarechnaya street”, “the cranes are Flying”, some competitive films. The members of our jury, headed by actor Stanislav Lyubshin will also be watching the Slovak film “Eva Nova is a floating cinema on Mytninskaya embankment in 22 hours. It can fit 100 people, the others watch a movie on the beach.

— Since you have ordered a floating cinema? This is expensive?

We did everything themselves and it was more expensive than everything else. But I have no regrets. Imagine food in St. Petersburg, and the driver, not knowing who I am, says how great it is that he will be able the whole family to watch a movie on the water. At the Palace square in the framework of the economic forum will host a concert, Valery Gergiev will conduct the orchestra. We show one of our movies in jail, and then the work will be discussed. Even impossible to describe how touching it turned out.

— The program has collected a beautiful and fresh picture of that somewhere in Greece or Italy can’t get in. And in St. Petersburg, if not a room on the water, come on the strength of ten men. For the city is a perennial trouble.

Well, for me, is a tragedy. We have one in our area, this was not. We are faced with a terrible bureaucracy. Yet orders Poltavchenko you can not do anything. Schools cannot take the children, no one wants to take responsibility. We realized that it is urgent to save the situation, asked for help from the local circus. They’re always working with children. On the opening day of the festival, two buses with the audience are unable to reach us, because on the eve of the forum in the city had closed all the roads. I didn’t really want to organize a “family” within its framework, was proposed to restrict myself to a few impressions, and the rest to organize later when it’s calmer. But we strongly recommend not to refuse to participate in the forum.
