MOSCOW, November 3. The XV Assembly of the Russian World was held in Moscow. As part of the program, the premiere of the film “Dialogue” took place.
"The film was created based on the results of the XVII media forum “Dialogue of Cultures”, which was held in St. Petersburg in May 2023. For 17 years now, the forum has remained one of the largest platforms in Russia, where young journalists from different countries meet every year,” says the press service.
As conceived by the author and director of the project, Ashot Jazoyan, the film consists of discussions between the director of the State Hermitage Mikhail Piotrovsky and young journalists who represent different peoples and cultures. The topic is dialogue in the Eurasian space at a time when the West is canceling Russian culture and the value of museums. Young media workers come from Georgia, Armenia, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia.
"The Eurasian space consists of unique states. Each has its own way of life, history and its own path of development. But these countries are not strangers to Russia; we are closely intertwined in our history and culture. That’s why we need this dialogue so much,” noted Jazoyan.
The film was translated into Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Tajik and Armenian. In November, the premieres took place in Abkhazia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and South Ossetia.
The film was created by the 4 Formats production center with the support of the Russkiy Mir Foundation.
