Kirill Razlogov: "The Song Of The Tree" - the most sensational film of the festival


40th Moscow International Film festival will be held on April 19-26, 2018. The Song Of The Tree will be shown at the Official non-competitive program Spectrum. 


There was first screening of the film The Song of the Tree (21.04.2018) at the 40th Moscow International Film festival. The Song Of The Tree included to the Official non-competitive program Spectrum. 


The idea behind the Spectrum program is to broaden – geopolitically, aesthetically, formally – the boundaries of the cinematic “spectrum” which emerges in the course of the current film season. 


"The most sensational film of the festival," - so Kirill Razlogov introduced a new Kyrgyz musical film "The Song of the Tree" in the program "Spectrum" of the Moscow International Film Festival. Very beautiful - incredible beauty of nature, faces, costumes, songs and music - and touching in its simplicity.
