The project of filming a documentary about the tragedy of the Churapchy migration during the Second World War is among the winners of contest for a grant of the RF President, dedicated to the Year of Memory and Glory of the 75th Anniversary of Victory, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to the Special Projects Department of the “Regions Of Russia ”Media Holding.
A contest for “While Memory’s Still Alive” presidential grants was announced in Russia in the framework of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War in 2020. Yakutia sent 59 applications, of which 18 became the winners of the contest.
The largest grant among the regions’ representatives was received by the association of car enthusiast women of Yakutia for their idea of creating the film “The Neverending Sorrow of the People” about the tragedy of the Churapchy migration in times of the Great Patriotic War.
“The very idea of the project comes from the children of the Churapchinsky migrants. The autoladies supported them, since there still isn’t a high-quality professionally edited film on how our ancestors worked in the rear during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. Many Churapchy inhabitants have wanted such a film for many years, and thanks to the Presidential Grants Fund, there will be such a film”, says Lena Baisheva, director of the “Car enthusiast women of Yakutia” association.
The film budget will be 5,6 million rubles. About four thousand people will take part, including schoolchildren, youth, veterans and residents of the districts. The film is planned to be ready by the end of 2020.
