The feature film “Territory”, shot in Chukotka, will be released on screens in February 2015

The full-length feature film "Territory", based on the novel of the same name by Oleg Kuvaev, will be released in Russia in February 2015. Director Alexander Melnik told about this at a meeting with the governor of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug Roman Kopin. The creator of the tape noted that the film is currently being edited.

Recall that the filming took place in several stages - in Taimyr and Chukotka. In the village of Provideniya, where the “Street of Geologists” decoration was specially built, the creative process took place in December 2012. The indigenous inhabitants of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug were involved as the actors of the crowd scenes.

In general, according to the director, it took about two years to shoot. Both winter and summer expeditions were organized. Each of them was attended by about 150 people. Alexander Melnik emphasized that the film based on the legendary work is a film about people.

- More often, when we talk about the Arctic territories, we mean natural resources - oil, gas. Some experts even say that we have the richest wind reserves. But it seems to me that the Arctic, especially for our country, has always been a place where the spirit of real strong, strong-willed people was forged. Our film is a story about great work, about service, about overcoming oneself. A real Arctic story, - the director shared.

Governor Roman Kopin told Alexander Melnik in a conversation that Chukotka is especially awaiting the release of the film.

- For everyone who lives in the region, this will be a great event. And especially for the visionaries who took a direct part in the filming process, in the crowd scenes, - said the governor and wished the director success in completing the film editing.

Let's add that the film was shot in the new 4K format. At the Days of the Arctic festival, which took place in Moscow from 20 to 22 November, visitors to the event could see fragments of it.
