Moscow and was submitted to the international festival of Orthodox films “Radonezh” . which is supported by the Ministry of culture of the Russian Federation.
– Why “the Bread day” attracted the attention of the Orthodox festivals?
According to program Director of the festival “Pokrov” Vadim Romanenko . “We were attracted by a powerful positive message of this film. In the finale we see true human happiness, suffering, and honest. I myself wanted. This is how the film was on the festival”.
It is important to note that for the writer the “Bread of the day” Nicholas Sycara . it was the first experience in writing the script of the drama genre.
– Was it hard to change your usual style? Probably, there is a big difference in creating scripts for light, funny films for serious. It was hard?
Nicholas Snitsar: Yes, the genre is required other approaches – exacerbation of conflicts, complications of obstacles to be overcome by heroes. Many of the situations were after studying the criminal news archives. Had to do the research and learn about aspects of life (the mockery of the old men, bondage, meanness traders, etc.), from which I, as probably most normal people, try to stay away. Yes, and the heroes had to Tinker — most of them I could have a grandson, so in order that the images were authentic, I tried to learn more about the psychology of older people. Besides, I got the opportunity to write on the script part of our family’s history – the story of Konstantin Petrovich – it is the story of my grandfather. Very pleased with that, focusing on the lives of ordinary people has found an echo in the hearts of the audience.
General producer Julia Chernyavskaya about “the Bread day”:
– One of the main goals that we had while creating this painting was to draw public attention to the problem of the elderly. Unfortunately, in today’s cruel world, they often become victims of fraud. Unscrupulous and dishonest betraying seniors, taking the last of his money and property. Therefore, planning a film we were hoping for a public outcry and the government response. Fortunately, the film’s Director Maxim mekhed coped with the task and the television movie “the Bread day” will be shown on major TV channels in Ukraine on inter and in Russia – on RTR, and presented at three major film festivals. Hopefully we’ll be able to reach the hearts of viewers and possibly assist in solving a huge social problem.
