MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
At the end of July, the premiere of the Yunarmeysky film “Memory is Alive” will take place in Crimea. The project is being implemented using a grant from the President of the Russian Federation provided by the Presidential Grants Foundation. The documentary picture is based on family stories told by children about the Great Patriotic War, the feat of their great-grandfathers and about the personal attitude of the Young Army members to the events of those years. The first viewers of the film will be the participants of the second All-Russian Patriotic Youth Forum, which will be held from 22 to 24 July in Sevastopol.
The teaser “Memory is alive” was presented in early June at the first Youth Army Forum in Krasnoyarsk. The three-minute version of the big film became a vivid finale of the plenary session. Children and war are a difficult combination, but telling and showing the history of those terrible events is necessary, says Daria Borisova, First Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Youth Army. First of all, in order to exclude falsification of facts. Historical memory is much more complex than all others.
“Not garrison caps and ribbons give the Yunarmeys awareness of the May 9 holiday. And here are the films made by their peers. This content is a great educational element. He instills love and other important human qualities. I confess that when creating the tape, we did not set the task of making a blockbuster with special effects and breathtaking sound. It was much more important to go into the depths – to show something real, alive, from which the heart will ache and the eyes will water. And it seems to me that it worked out, ”said Daria Borisova.
It was breathtaking and heart-stopping even when watching the teaser, admitted the Yunarmee Viktoria Apostolova from Tver. According to the girl, there were very emotional moments when she wanted to hug the authors and hold the audience’s hand as a sign of solidarity and respect.
“I know many of the guys who took part in the work on the film personally. I wondered how they grew up talking about the war. Each of them speaks about what he is close and familiar with – about the heroes of his family. And this cannot leave anyone indifferent, ”she added.
In addition to the premiere of the film, educational master classes, discussion platforms and strategic sessions are planned in Sevastopol. The site will bring together about 5 thousand patriots of Russia – leaders of children’s and youth movements and public organizations, as well as teenagers themselves, leaders of youth army units. Within the framework of the forum, “Graffiti of Victory” will be created and several partnership agreements will be signed.
The Forum in Sevastopol is the second stage of the “Memory is Alive” project, aimed at preserving history and spiritual and moral education of young people. Its first stage was the Youth Army’s holding of all-Russian contests dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory: “The feat of heroes in the hearts of generations”, “The history of my family in the history of the Great Patriotic War” and “Patriotism in my heart”. In the first case, the jury evaluated creative solo and collective performances. The second competition involved writing scripts with stories about frontline relatives, and the third – projects and videos about love for the Motherland and patriotism.
Recall that the All-Russian military-patriotic public movement “Yunarmiya” was created in 2016 at the initiative of the Ministry of Defense and with the support of the President of Russia. Now there are more than 800 thousand participants in its ranks. The main task of the movement is patriotic education, as well as the physical, intellectual and social development of young people.
