MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Famous British director Peter Greenaway will shoot a film about Russian film director Sergei Eisenstein on location in Russia, head of the Russian State Film Fund, Gosfilmofond, Nikolai Borodachev told journalists on Wednesday.
Greenaway would join a delegation coming to Moscow on April 14 to open an exhibition about the Russian "avant-garde" where the long-planned project would be discussed, he told Itar-Tass.
The international film, mainly financed from Switzerland, would be called Eisenstein Among Friends, he said, noting that Gosfilmofond had a collection of scientific studies about Eisenstein.
“Greenaway is writing a script now. He promised to send us the synopsis, and then we'll start working,” said Borodachev. The British director was also planning to digitize his previous works for Gosfilmofond, he added.
Greenaway has made repeated visits to Russia, notably to the Moscow Film Festival, and has worked with Russian actors to underline his respect for the nation's culture.
Greenaway says that when in Moscow, he is touched by the fact that this is the city where Eisenstein created his art, comparing the Russian to Rembrandt and Beethoven.
Greenaway is one of the most popular and maverick European directors, whose avant-garde works such as Prospero’s Books, The Draughtsman’s Contract, The Pillow Book, and The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover have become highlights of world cinematography.
