In the last weekend of the summer, from 24 to 26 August, the Patriki Film Festival took place in Moscow. As you can guess from the name, the venue was a variety of sites near the Patriarshy Ponds – this area, according to the ideologist of the festival Alexei Bokova, has long been one of the most famous in the capital and, as a kind of visiting card of the city, deserved his film.
The festival was decided to devote to the acting profession, and therefore it was the actors who became the main characters of the events in the review: Nadezhda Mikhalkova, Konstantin Khabensky, Maria Mironova, Yegor Koreshkov, Anatoly Bely and many other stars took part in public discussions and met with the audience.
While some talked about their creative plans, others played football (for charitable purposes, of course), while others communicated with children on poetic evenings. One of the most interesting events in the extensive program was a public talk with Nadezhda Mikhalkova. The actress told about her directorial debut, “The Lost Place” – a horror about teenagers under the scenario of the outstanding domestic playwrights of the Presnyakov brothers, which will be released in October, as well as about relations with Anna’s father and sister (“having fun, going to bars”), raising children “sometimes barely manage”) and much more.
