Konchalovsky Film Starring Vysotskaya Received a Special Prize

77th Venice Film Festival gives out its awards

A SCENE FROM THE FILM DEAR COMRADES

The 77th Film Festival has ended in Venice. It was an unusual film forum: not everyone was able to travel to Italy to personally present their films. So, the director of the film “The Land of the Nomads” Chloe Zhao (this picture eventually became the owner of the “Golden Lion of St. Mark”), as well as the performer of the main family Frances McDormand at the awards ceremony did not go on stage, but on the air. And right from the van in which the main character of the film traveled across America.

The Grand Prix was awarded to the film “New Order” by Michel Franco. “Silver Leva” – directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa and the film “Spy’s Wife”. Best Actor named Pier Francesco Favino – for his role in the film “Our Father”. The Best Actress Award went to Vanessa Kirby in Fragments of a Woman. Andrei Konchalovsky was awarded a special jury prize. He presented at the festival the historical film “Dear Comrades!”, In which his wife, Yulia Vysotskaya, played the main role.
