MEXICO, November 25. /TASS/. The Week of Russian Cinema opened in the Mexican capital city on Friday.
The first film was shown in a hall - a part of a big Cinepolis network. It featured representatives of the local arts and diplomats. The Russian delegation features officials, actors, directors, critics and producers.
Head of the Russian delegation, Secretary of the Russian Union of Cinematographers Sergei Novozhilov, expressed hope demonstration of Russian films would become regular in Mexico.
"We organize Weeks in Brazil, Mongolia, Greece, China, in many other countries, and I hope this tradition will be here, too," he said, explaining the Week’s objective is to present to Latin American audiences modern Russian cinema, which is practically unknown there, and to establish contacts with representatives of the local cinema industries. "Perhaps, we shall host a similar Week of Mexican Cinema in Moscow, as we know the Mexican cinema rather by the soap operas of the 1990s, not by what is happening now."
"We are very pleased to have this project - the Week of Russian Cinema," Director of the Cinepolis network Ramon Ramirez Guzman told TASS. "It is not an easy task, as the Mexican audience is not used to films of the kind, but I should say, the modern cinema, both Russian or of any other country, shows the life, which is very much like the modern Mexican life, the dynamics of relations is the same." He expressed hope this project will help the Mexican audience "overcome the barrier to understand films of other type," different from Hollywood products.
