TV BRICS film "More Precious than Gold" to be screened at BRICS Film Festival in Brazil
On Friday, 16 December, CEASIA (Coordenadoria de Estudos de Ásia in Portuguese) and the BRICS Observatory at the Federal University of Latin American Integration (Observatório dos BRICS da UNILA in Portuguese) will host the third BRICS Film Festival, which this year will be held online.
One film from each country was submitted to the competition. During the event, experts will present their views on the strategic importance of cultural integration between the five states.
TV BRICS has been a media partner of the event since 2021, when the first documentary of the international network "Dostoevsky Intercontinental" was shown.
“China will present the film "Hong Gao Lian", Russia will show the TV BRICS documentary "More Precious than Gold", Brazil will participate with the film "Marighella", India will represent "White Tiger", South Africa will choose the classic "A cry for freedom". We are confident that the BRICS Documentary Film Festival will be an excellent opportunity for the exchange of knowledge between these five countries,” said festival organiser Fabio Borges.
In his opinion, the competition can help strengthen international cooperation.
The TV BRICS film "More Precious than Gold" will be shown on the opening day of the festival - on Friday, 16 December. This is a project on the development of a gold deposit in Khabarovsk Krai, which has become an example of an environmental compromise - civilisation and industry have adapted to the life of indigenous peoples and nature.
“The TV BRICS documentary "More Precious than Gold" raises the main question for the future of mankind: is it possible to minimize the impact of scientific and technological progress and innovation on the environment? This is no longer a rhetorical question. This is indeed a task that we face in reality - the fight against climate change and the impact of those negative consequences that affect the economic and social spheres of life. For the BRICS film festival, the documentary plays an important role. The picture shows the little-known realities of such a large country,” said Borges.
Previously, the documentary film became the winner of the All-Russian competition of mass media, Internet resources, bloggers in the field of renewable energy sources "TextVIE"
In addition, in October, TV BRICS film became the winner of the “Energy of the Pen" international media competition in “The best piece on energy from BRICS and SCO countries” category. It was also shown at the V International Innovative Film Festival in Bangalore, the IX International Film Festival "Zero Plus", the Open Documentary Film Festival "Russia". The film had its international premiere in South Africa.Photo: IStock
