Journalist and Film Critic Vasily Koretsky in an interview with Pravda.Ru, commented on the bill banning films with scenes of violence and sexual minorities.
“I don’t understand what to do with patriotic content and films about the Great Patriotic War, in which there is a lot of violence. For example, the film” Brest Fortress “, which was supported by the state and is considered a patriotic model. Or the film” Stalingrad “by Bondarchuk. will they be? How to show the Great Patriotic War without it? ” – said the expert.
At the same time, he recalled the need for age categories and stressed that there should not be episodes of violence in children’s films. Such content can be shocking and traumatic for minors, the specialist noted.
“An adult can choose which movie to watch. Children are not very versed. Therefore, if we are talking about children’s content, I do not see any problem. And if, as usual, we are talking about a total ban, then this is very strange,” he concluded film critic.
Formerly Chairman of the Committee on Family, Women and Children Nina Ostanina reported that the deputies of the State Duma this spring will consider an initiative on restricting cinema with a demonstration of violence and same-sex relationships.
“We believe that the media and law enforcement agencies should also participate in protecting children from the effects of such negative information,” Ostanina emphasized, quoted by MK.ru.
