By the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, the film “Nuremberg” must be released on Russian screens. This was announced by Vladimir Medinsky, speaking at a meeting of the Victory organizing committee chaired by Vladimir Putin. The Minister of Culture asked the president to instruct the Ministry of Finance to consider the draft of this film for separate financing as the “central project of the cinema for the 75th anniversary”.
In his speech, Medinsky called the Nuremberg trials a topic requiring “reliable coverage in the national cinematography”. The project will be managed by producers of “Sobibor”.
- To create films, producers propose to attract foreign stars and specialists from all countries participated in the Nuremberg trials, an international cast, - said the Minister.
“Our future film is based on unique testimonies collected by those who for decades have been deeply involved in studying the events of the Nuremberg trials,” said producer Elmira Ainulova. TASS quoted her words. “The film will be based on unknown until recently historical facts and documents obtained by historians and journalists directly from the participants and witnesses of the Nuremberg trials.” The producer found it difficult to answer who will be the director of the project.
The Nuremberg trials are the trials of the Nazi criminals which took place from November 20, 1945 to October 1, 1946 at the International Military Tribunal. Participants in the trials were the USSR, USA, France and the UK. World cinematography has already referred to this event. So, in 1961, the classic of American cinematography Stanley Kramer shot the film “Judgment at Nuremberg”.
