The filmmaker believes that teenagers are more interested in streaming services and social networks.
“They are defeated by the comfort and speed of viewing. But as long as the adherents of the big screen and the cultural atmosphere remain in the country, there will be demand for ticketed screenings,” Zakharov quotes Om1.ru.
The director is convinced that foreign sanctions have not yet affected Russian cinema in any way.
