Govorukhin: "I am in favor of domestic producers!"

November 21 2007

Directed by Stanislav Govorukhin called for adoption of a law by which half of the films shown on TV channels in Russia, will be manufactured in Russia.

"We will try to adopt a law on quotas: 50% - movies made in Russia, 50% - foreign production", - said S. Govorukhin at a meeting with voters of candidates in the State Duma deputies from United Russia party. "

According to S. Govorukhin, over the last year in Russia, was shot 450 films, including documentaries, but the quality of films produced in Russia leaves much to be desired. "We learned how to make Labuda, trash is not worse than American cinema," - he said. According to the director, most recently only to "The Island" and "12" can be regarded as qualitative. "All the other: either completely immoral, or aping - an imitation of American cinema", - he said.

Teen Movie, in the opinion of Govorukhin, should be a government priority. "There should be a law that television should show children's films, theater, they must also translate, but the State will allocate funds for the shooting of children's cinema", - he said.

He hoped that the new State Duma adopts a law on the Supreme Council, who will oversee broadcast on television programs, but it will not be censorship authority, writes Interfax .
