The documentary film "The Blue-eyed Japanese" produced in Russia, Japan and the USA after its premiere at the Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF) will be shown at two more Russian screenings. This was announced at a press conference on Sunday by the film's producer Anna Shalashina.

"In Russia, the fate of the picture one way or another, I think, will develop. <...> After the Moscow Film Festival, we have two more festivals in Russia, to which the film has already been invited. The painting was also sold to the TV-3 TV channel and the Premier platform," said Anna Shalashina.

In an interview with TASS, the producer of the film clarified that after the MIFF it will be shown, in particular, at the Amur Autumn Film Festival in Blagoveshchensk. "The painting will be shown in Blagoveshchensk at the Amur Autumn Festival. I can't name the second festival yet, because the program hasn't been announced yet," Anna Shalashina said.

The open Russian festival of cinema and theater "Amur Autumn" will be held in Blagoveshchensk from September 11 to 18, according to the official website of the review.

"The Blue-eyed Japanese" directed by Chavdar Georgiev participates in the MIFF documentary film competition. At the press conference, the producer thanked the festival team, noting that all tickets for the premiere of the film on August 29 were sold out. In turn, the director of the tape called his picture a deeply humanitarian film that "unites Japan, Russia and America together at a very unique moment in history." "We all have something to learn from the Japanese, the Russians, and the Americans, what mistakes to avoid in the future," concluded Chavdar Georgiev.
