Work on the film “Plast”, which is released by “STUDIO 12”, has been completed. This is a full-length picture for big screens about amber and its mining and smuggling in the Kaliningrad region. The main roles were played by Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Kirill Kyaro, Sergei Makovetsky, Victoria Bogatyreva, Emil Egorov and other actors. The film was directed by our compatriot Stanislav Sapachev.
– Due to the pandemic and the difficult situation in the world, the work on the film was not easy and lasted two years. But today we are happy to say that the picture is ready! We are looking forward to the premiere, – the film’s director Stanislav Sapachev told Komsomolskaya Pravda.
As the general producer of the film “Plast” Angelika Pashkova said, a special screening of the film is planned in Kaliningrad with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the region. However, the date of the premiere in our city and the start date of the rental in Russian cinemas have not yet been announced.
Meanwhile, the online cinema KION has already announced the premiere – “Plast” will be available on April 1.
For the director, “Plast” was his feature film debut. For 15 years Sapachev worked as an actor at the Kaliningrad Musical Theater, then studied at the director’s studio of the Nikita Mikhalkov Academy, where his artistic director was Vladimir Khotinenko. Earlier, Stas’s short films won awards at Russian and foreign festivals.
WHAT THE FILM IS ABOUT
Two other childhoods – Zhenya (Kirill Kyaro) and Slava (Vladimir Vdovichenkov). Ordinary guys who live by the sea. Difficult 90s, devastation, post-perestroika period, poverty. The guys are forced to be “runners” – they run to the quarries and extract amber, work for a living. All their further life is connected with amber. Profits, crazy money… The film has references to the 90s, but the main action takes place in 2017.
