So this year the organizers instead of the usual film week decided to take only two days and called them “Youth. The prologue”. Under this name hides a few high-profile premieres and the best Ukrainian short films. However, even in this short format was not without scandal: the film festival opened with the film “the World is Your home!” based on “Tevye the milkman” by Sholom Aleichem. To remove it began five years ago with Russian actor Yevgeny Knyazev in the title role. Since that time many things have changed, in particular the last name Knyazev appeared in the letter to Vladimir Putin in support of the annexation of Crimea. But the film’s Director Vladimir Lert argues that this letter is actually fake and no one was signed.
