On the Black Sea coast, in the sunny city of Sochi, the 28th open festival of USA cinema "Kinotavr" has completed its work. In the program of the main competition this year, as well as last year, 14 films took part, half of which became a full-length debut for the directors.|
The organizers themselves did not deny that the program of the finished "Kinotavr" turned out to be quite controversial. The competition featured pictures of polar styles and genres: someone studied social networks that have become a reality for today's youth, someone tried to understand human problems through the prism of family relations.
The jury headed by Yevgeny Mironov had to make a difficult choice, and he fell on the drama " Arrhythmia ", which tells about the life of an ambulance doctor. It is noteworthy that the previous day Boris Khlebnikov's film received the Audience Award. The tape impressed the audience so much that the applause in the hall did not subside until the final credits.
Also at the opening ceremony of the festival, director Pavel Chukhrai was awarded the honorary prize For honor, dignity and devotion to cinema .
