Legendary Film Director Georgi Daneliya Passed Away

Soviet and Russian film director, the People's Artist of the USSR, Georgi Daneliya, aged 88, died on April 4, 2019. 

      In late February this year, he was hospitalized with pneumonia. Diagnosed with pneumothorax, the film director had to be put in an induced coma for stabilizing his breathing. Over the past few days, his health condition deteriorated having resulted in a cardiac arrest.

      Born into an intelligent Georgian family, Georgi Daneliya became an eternal pillar of Russian culture. He has always been a stranger to officialdom and never willing to march in step with the mainstream. Maybe that is why his films, which have become the classics of cinema, are equally loved by both the older and the younger generations of viewers.

      Georgi Daneliya’s best films, such as I Walk across Moscow, Afonya, Mimino, Autumn Marathon, Kin-Dza-Dza and The Gentlemen of Luck, enjoy eternal nationwide popularity.

      His films are usually defined as tragicomedy but the tragedy of his characters is compensated with exceptionally heartfelt humaneness.
