As part of the 13th Rome Film Festival, the world premiere of the film “Donbass. Borderland” directed by Renat Davletyarov. The film represents Russia in the official film screening program. According to the Head of the DPR Representative center in Italy, Maurizio Marrone, this is a very important event that reveals to the public facts about the war in Donbass.
“In Italy, in Europe, cultural events are very useful tools for breaking the [informational] wall of the Western media about the war in Donbass: first books, then exhibitions, and now films. This is a very effective way to arouse the curiosity of the Italian population about the situation in Donetsk” Marrone said in his video message.
The film “Donbass. Borderland” is the first documentary about the war in Donbass, shot with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The film will be released in Russia in spring 2019.
