Meetings with Russian Culture on big screen in Verona


The 10th Meetings with Russian Culture: Cinema film festival started in Verona. This year it is dedicated to the work of director Andrei Konchalovsky. Meetings are held at Palazzo della Gran Guardia every Monday at 20:30 until March 18. Admission is free.

The festival was organized by the Honorary Consulate of Russia in Verona, Discover Eurasia Association and Russian Center with the support of Russkiy Mir Foundation and the State Film Fund under the patronage of the municipality of Verona.

The audience watched the Uncle Vanya movie on February 4. It was filmed in 1970. The movie is a screen version of the dramatic play by Anton Chekhov, in which director Andrei Konchalovsky concentrates on Russian classics. The film recreates the pre-revolutionary atmosphere and tells the story of Uncle Vanya, a landowner who sacrifices himself and his life aspirations in favor of family values.

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
