"Innocent Saturday" received the main prize at the International Film Festival in Brussels

June, 29th 2011

The feature film "Innocent Saturday" by Alexander Mindadze got the Grand Prix during the ceremony of closing of Brussels International Film Festival. This festival is being held annually starting from 1974. The competition program is formed only of the films with the European production.

"I'm very pleased to be honored by this prize. Brussels has become the first European city that I visited when I was young scriptwriter. IХm glad to have this prize and to realize that my film is understood in Europe. I'm happy that the European viewer is able to understand my film and the sense of it. The reason is that this is film not only strictly about Chernobyl disaster. More widely it represents the metaphor of humanХs life in its huge and international perception. The most important thing for me was to show how a man being in front of a catastrophe canХt escape and move from his place but how he continues to live thoughtless, how he is carried away by the little nothings of life which becomes more and more precious to him. When the circumstances become unbearable, the life, instead of going out blossoms like a farewell", - comments director Alexander Mindadze.
