Francophonie by Alexander Sokurov was Sell-Out at the Venice Film Festival

The new film Francophonie by the famous Russian director Alexander Sokurov attracted a capacity crowd at the Venice Film Festival.

      The house was full during the film screening and after the final credits the audience thanked the film director with long ovations. Alexander Sokurov has every chance to win the Golden Lion at the 72nd Venice Film Festival currently being held from 2 to 12 September 2015.

      Francophonie tells the story of how the staff of Louvre tried to preserve the museum values collected from around the world. The feature film is substantiated with episodes of documentary newsreels. Alexander Sokurov personally speaks as the offscrren story-teller emphasizing that art is higher than politics and any war.

      Alexander Sokurov does not represent Russia at the festival, since the film was financed by the French and German investors.
