MOSCOW, September 22 /TASS/. Russia has nominated "Sunstroke", a film by Nikita Mikhalkov, for an Oscar in the best foreign film nomination, Vladimir Menshov, the head of the Russian Oscar Committee, told TASS.
"We have chosen Nikita Mikhalkov’s ‘Sunstroke’," Menshov said.
"Sunstroke" is a project by Nikita Mikhalkov based on the story "Sunstroke" and the book "Cursed Days" by Russian writer Ivan Bunin. The idea of making such a film appeared in the early 1980s. However, Mikhalkov and his colleagues got down to writing the script only in 2010. Sunstroke’s world premiere took place in Belgrade, Serbia, on October 3, 2014. The film’s Russian premiere was in Crimea. Sunstroke appeared on screens on October 9, 2014. Mikhalkov’s picture won the Golden Eagle Award in the best film 2014 nomination in January 2015.
