Rodion Ismailov told in “My home” about how it went with her daughter to Azerbaijan, to their homeland. A girl whose Russian mother, never saw the relatives on my father’s side, first became acquainted with the traditions of other people. Rodion says: “For me this film became a kind of anthropological study. I myself is the representative of two cultures, and once missed the moment of realization “who am I”, and now decided to explore the process of self-identification, conducted an experiment with a private family. The idea was that a child brought up in one culture first appeared in another of which it is part, but never before with it never touching. Whether he is aware that is part of this culture? Will it or will distance themselves?”.
Anastasia Zverkova took a 15-minute film “Brother” in his native Irkutsk, where he lives with her dark-skinned character françois. In the evening on local television he read out weather reports, and a day of a tram driver. 20 years ago, Francois had come to Siberia from Africa, and being a physiologist by training, has mastered a very different profession. That’s what led to his immense love for the Soviet Union. Just got it in a completely different country.
Yevgeny shelyakin, representing “B/W” in Simferopol, says: “In Central Asia, many post-Soviet countries is much less opportunity to feed the family. So people go to Russia, to build, to sweep the yards, driving a taxi, and send money home. Someone is trying to make easy and even criminal way. So there are nationalist sentiments in society, But everything to do with cruelty, violence never solved problems.”
Ended the film forum screening of the feature film “Escape from Moskvabada” Darya Poltoratskaya about the life of migrant workers from CIS countries and just arrived in the capital of residents of other Russian cities. Daria Poltoratskaya studied journalism at Moscow state University, mastered the specialty “muralist” in the Stroganov school, received the profession of the actress on the course of Yuri Lyubimov in the Shchukin drama school and then became a Director. Worked on the TV series “Talisman of love”, “Not born beautiful”, “Wide river” and other, not yet debuted full-length feature films “Escape from Moskvabada”. “Moscow is my hometown, but I felt uncomfortable to live in it, – says Daria Poltoratskaya. – Because the city is primarily the people. And came — hurrying, hustling, snapping. We can easily come into conflict. Almost every one of us has ever uttered the remark: “Come in large numbers here!” Who “come in large numbers”? Is this a problem? Now who’s “we”? I wanted to see it.”
Many screenings were accompanied by heated discussions. The audience did not disperse after the screenings. Not just talking about what they liked and what not, but discussing what is happening in their everyday life, often occurring in the atmosphere of intolerance and rejection of those who are different from themselves. This is a problem not only Russian. More removed in a world of films about migrants, about how different cultures find or not find a common language. In the words of the representatives of the prosperous countries more ready to accept, but in fact very aggressive perceive those who came to him and not allow to live.
