In the Wink video service (a joint venture of Rostelecom and NMG) as part of the film almanac
The director of the short story about Crimea was Alina Veripya, who shot videos for leading Russian and foreign artists, including SHAMAN, Olga Buzova, “HANDS UP”, etc.
In addition to Egor Beroev and Kristina Isaykina, the novel also stars Oleg Gazmanov, Tatyana Sytova (“The Road to Home,” “Gurzuf”), Svetlana Dorokhina (“Poddubny,” “The Oligarch’s Wife”) and others.
In the story, event manager Katya, after completing a large-scale project, decides to relax in the mountains of Crimea. Katya’s car suddenly stalls, and she finds herself alone among the vineyards, where she meets a passionate winegrower and winemaker, Sergei, who shows her where the real place of power is.
This is an amazing peninsula… With very open people who live their lives in a state of never-ending siesta. Energy and beauty, the air ringing with silence… We burst in with frantic metropolitan energy and on the second day we realized that this place has different rules — we need to slow down to feel and create what we want. This is what the film is about. Filming took place at the Massandra winery. Having crossed the threshold of their “fragrant Vatican”, we felt at home. We were met there, helped and loved like family. This certainly helped us film everything quickly. Everything worked out as it should! — notes director Alina Veripä.
The almanac “Native People” consists of eight short stories of different genres — drama, comedy, melodrama and adventure. They talk about how the lives of the main characters have changed over 20 years, how the country has changed along with them, and how they are trying to find something in common with children who are now at the same age of searching that they themselves were in the 1990s.
The heroes of the stories are students who studied at the same institute in the 90s and lived together in a dormitory. Then many moved away, their paths diverged and their lives turned out differently, but they did not lose touch and still communicate, help each other and share common problems. Classmates meet after 20 years at the anniversary of their favorite teacher. But how much will happen before this meeting…
